Research: 

AK works on the Mughal Empire and the Indian Subcontinent up to the 18th Century. Her interest lies in ethnic and religious diversity, the functions of historiographic writing and in forms of dependencies in the pre-modern and early modern times. In the context of her work on the Mughal and late Mughal courts, she focuses on social relations and dependencies between the ruler and free as well as enslaved nobles. Her work includes both the elite circles at court as well as a micro-historical perspective on subaltern military slaves and their masters.
