Nidhi Subramanyam


Nidhi is a Ph.D. student in City and Regional Planning, with a concentration in International Studies in Planning. Her research examines how small cities in the global South manage urbanization in the face of demographic and climate change. She studies the provision and management of basic services such as water and sanitation (and the infrastructure that undergirds them) in small cities in India. Her other interest areas include postcolonial urban development, and the politics of localism in cities in the global South. Prior to returning to Cornell to pursue her doctoral studies, Nidhi worked with the Climate Change program at Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC).
