Dr Subramaniam explains her research as follows: "My primary research interest lies in the relationships between gender, race, colonialism and science. Primarily trained as a biologist, I am interested in building bridges between the natural sciences and the social sciences and the humanities. My current aim is to develop a "reconstructive" project for feminism and science. Woven across many disciplines and interdisciplines, my work seeks to reconnect the worlds of "natures" and "cultures." By bringing together scholarship from women's studies, biological sciences, science studies, postcolonial studies, and ethnic studies, I am attempting to develop innovative academic practices, informed and shaped by experimental practice in the sciences, and feminist scholarship from the humanities and social sciences."
