Dr Dhiraj Kumar Mohan Nainani

Research Fellow
Environmental Engineering cluster, SCELSE


Dr. Dhiraj Nainani joined SCELSE as a research fellow under A/Prof Janelle Thompson’s supervision in the Environmental Engineering cluster. He specializes in sociolegal studies, legal geography, legal history, ethnographic work, and data studies, and seeks to connect these interdisciplinary ways of thinking with public health surveillance – especially wastewater surveillance. He was awarded a Ph.D. in law at the University of Hong Kong in 2021, and joined SCELSE shortly thereafter. His highlighted works include writing about the colonial history of sewage and surveillance in Hong Kong, as well as the spatio-legal legacy of wastewater surveillance in Singapore after the COVID-19 pandemic.
