Her dissertation and post dissertation work focused on forest governmentality and subject creation in the Lokkere Reserve Forest. She has presented this research at a workshop on ‘Conservation, Climate Change and Decolonisation: Exploring New Frontiers in the Social Sciences’ in Barcelona and the ‘Student Conference in Conservation Science’ inBengaluru. After her Master’s, Manasi worked for close to a year in the Centre for the Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP) as a Research Associate. Her current interests evolve around the role played by different knowledge systems in shaping forest landscapes across urban and rural geographies, and the associated policy implications in the Indian context.
