As a social anthropologist, I focus on the intersection of medicine and the law. I have conducted one year of ethnographic investigation in three North-Indian morgues. This fieldwork is the basis of my PhD dissertation, in which I explore various aspects of the practice of forensic medicine. Results have been published in several peer-reviewed journals and edited works. My conceptual interests are the pragmatics of medical language, the production of knowledge about the body, and the articulation of the biological and the social in anthropological theory.
