Kavya graduated with a Master’s in Public Policy from the Jindal School of Government and Public Policy, OP Jindal Global University in the August of 2020, following which she joined the school two months later as a research fellow and an academic tutor. Kavya’s primary research interests are in the matters of democratic reforms, particularly the deepening of citizen’s political agency through participation and deliberative reasoning. She is especially keen to study the deepening of democracy in the context of tribal communities and their rights, especially how their knowledge systems which contribute to the very effective conservation of biodiversity, can be brought more political visibility by enhancing the space for their participation in political decision making and public policy.
