M.S./Ph.D. Candidate, Development Sociology
Originally from New Delhi, Aman Banerji earned his B.A. with a concentration in economics and geography from Sarah Lawrence College (2014). From 2014-18, he worked at the Roosevelt Institute, an economic policy think tank based out of NYC.
In his research, Aman examines the financial logics, imaginaries, and political contestations remaking the urban peripheries of 'global' cities today. He investigates how state agents and elites manage and contest the competing pressures of producing an exploding land market for global financial and real estate capital while enacting an industrial policy of making things.
