Research interests

Jaskiran is a political ecologist with an interdisciplinary background in the Social Sciences. She holds a PhD in Development Studies from UCL, in which she researched the contestation between industrial farming methods and agroecology in two Zonas de Reserva Campesino, Colombia. This explored how these rural communities construct sustainable alternatives to mainstream development and the obstacles they face. 

At Bristol, Jaskiran worked on the POR EL Páramo (POst-conflict Reconciliation of Environment and Livelihoods in Boyacá Páramo) project in Colombia, aiming to better understand changing livestock practices and wider socio-environmental tensions related to conservation in the Páramo region.
