PROFILE

Dr. Sreerupa . , Research Consultant

Dr. Sreerupa has completed postdoctoral research at Centre for Women’s Development Studies and King’s College London on the Laws of Social Reproduction project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program. She received her PhD in Economics and MPhil in Applied Economics from the Centre for Development Studies (CDS), Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Using an interdisciplinary lens of economic sociology and ethnographic methods, her doctoral research examined transformative changes in the local eldercare economy from a Global South perspective, in the context of widespread transnational migration in Kerala (India). Her work generated important issues for feminist research which pertains to the contested mixing of the sphere of care and economy. As a Postdoctoral Researcher, she analysed women’s reproductive labor outside the realm of the market and examined the linkages between women’s unpaid and paid work.

Dr. Sreerupa also has considerable experience in researching and collaborating on development issues related to aging, health, and health care in India and other parts of Asia, working as a consultant/researcher with international research institutes, government and non-government agencies such as Nihon University Population Research Institute (Tokyo), HelpAge International and Kerala State Planning Board. She was awarded the Australian Leadership Awards Fellowship to promote Healthy Ageing for a program at Burnet Institute, Melbourne, sponsored by the Australian Government, AusAID.

She has presented her work at several national and international seminars, delivered lectures and organised seminars. She has published articles and contributed chapters to various international and national journals and edited books. Currently, she is editing a section on Care in the Handbook of Ageing, Health and Public Policy published by Springer Nature, Singapore. At ISST, she is presently involved with organising the 'Gender and Economic Policy' discussion forums funded by the Heinrich Boll Stiftung (HBF) and is associated with Micro-enterprises and Home-based Work in Garment Value Chains project.
