Research Interests

Kaveri’s research has examined gendered life courses, family life, and how people deal with transitions, from an episode of incapacitating illness, to the breakdown of a marriage, to new motherhood. With colleagues at Oxford, she has been involved in collaborative research on generational change in reproductive cultures, infant feeding and miscarriage. She continues to be involved in collaborative work on the anthropological demography of health, and to take forward her interests in reproduction and sexuality in Pakistan and Britain.
