Dr Anjali Krishan

Former Postdoctoral Researcher


Anjali Krishan is a cultural anthropologist interested in gender, experiences of precariousness and ethics during a time of increased uncertainty and rapid urban transformation.

Prior to her work at Fairwork, Anjali was completing her DPhil at the University of Oxford in international development. In her doctoral research she used evocative ethnographic methods to capture how middle-class married women tell stories about the suicides of women like them. This research looked at how gender relations shape both the recognition of suffering as well as the ethical response to this suffering.

Anjali has worked on several mixed-methods projects in the international development space and co-authored a chapter using qualitative methods in international development.
