Kalyani's research interests lie in cities, climate change, environmental risk, and inequality. Her dissertation project is an ethnographic study based in Mumbai and Miami that examines how vulnerable communities, local governments, and the real estate market make decisions about flooding based on their access to resources and information, their perception of risk, and their ties to place. Kalyani received her undergraduate degree in Sociology from Mount Holyoke College.
