I am a PhD Candidate within the field of Design Management. My focus is on textiles, fashion, and sustainability, specifically how moving toward small-scale, local, and artisanal textile and fashion systems might be a beneficial alternative to the current large-scale, global, industrial paradigm.

I have worked at the University of Borås since 2010. I earned my Masters in Textile Management at The Swedish School of Textiles, and my BFA at Parsons The New School for Design.

My work is financed by The University of Borås with travel contributions from The New School.

Working title of the thesis: Artisans, Design, Management, and Sustainability: The Maheshwari Case of WomenWeave
