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 project in Colombia, which explored changing livestock practices and wider socio-environmental tensions related to conservation in the Páramo region. 

She is also a PI on the project Peasant and Popular Feminism: Co-constructing Sustainability and Peace, which studies the emobdiment and rooting of the Latin American rural feminist concept in the Middle Magdalena, Colombia. Using co-produced and multi-methods approaches, it unpacks how feminism is expressed in this region, as well as the diverse feminist pathways to peace constructed by women.
