Snehashish is a Fellow-Urban Studies at ORF Mumbai. His research focus is on issues of urban housing, environmental justice, borderlands and citizenship politics.

He has extensive work and research experience in Northeast India, where he has worked on issues of out-migration, Look East Policy and borderland urbanization. Such experiences have culminated into meaningful engagements in housing and citizenship rights of people. His fieldwork experiences, conducted through ethnographic methods, have developed a keen sense of grasping peoples’ sentiments and ability to centre peoples’ experiences in policy and governance. He is also equipped with archival research experiences which complimented his interests in how the state thinks and plans to execute its programme and agendas.

As a recipient of the Fulbright-Nehru Doctoral Scholarship, he spent 9 months at the Department of Anthropology, Yale University.
