Dr Sharmila Parmanand has a PhD in Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies from the University of Cambridge on a Gates scholarship. Her doctoral research examined ‘sex trafficking’ discourses and interventions in the Philippines from a critical perspective. Most of her research projects interrogate how development and state interventions targeted at women in the global south reflect and shape their lived realities, with a focus on gender and international development, the politics of knowledge production, and feminist entanglements with the state on issues of human rights and women’s precarious labour. She also has a master’s in Development Studies from the University of Melbourne on an Australian Leadership Award scholarship.
