Sanghamitra is a graduate student of the social studies of science, technology and medicine. Her sites of inquiry are the interfaces between biomedicine and society, particularly in the Global South. Sanghamitra's doctoral research is an ethnography of the biomedical management of rare genetic conditions in India with a focus on sickle cell disease in India. Her broader theoretical approach explores the different trajectories that biomedicine traces in its implementation in sites across the world, and how such implementations are imbricated with configurations of power, capital and agency.
