Influenced by new materialism, specifically by infrastructural studies, my recent work draws on material-semiotic perspectives to explore how visions of securing society are entangled with socio-material arrangements. Inspired by post-colonial studies, I have been also interested in how some infrastructures of security are invisibilized by mainstream political perspectives and how infrastructures become a field of contestation between different visions of ordering and organizing society and space.
