Sanghamitra is a graduate scholar of the social studies of science and technology. Her sites of inquiry are the knowledge systems of the life sciences, genetics and biomedical technologies and their relationships with societies, particularly in the non-western world.  She is currently working on the therapeutic applications of human genome editing for rare genetic conditions and the ensuing governmentality of individuals and communities with rare genetic conditions. Her broader theoretical inquiry investigates the different trajectories that technosciences trace in their mobilizations across the globe as well as their relationship with indigenous/alternative knowledge systems.

She is also an avid reader with a passion for writing. She believes that in addition to publishing academic research articles, there is a need to promote public engagement in democratic deliberations around emerging technologies through articles in various media outlets. She aims to contribute to the same through her own academic and non-academic publications.
