In her doctoral research, Bipashyee has studied urban mobility transformations in megacities in the Global South, particularly in India and Thailand. Using theories of sustainability transitions and socio-technical imaginaries, her work explored the ongoing transitions in urban mobility systems and visions for smart cities in response to persistent sustainability problems like social inequality and climate change. Her current work includes writing an advanced introduction book for sustainability transitions, a research agenda on Transformative Innovation Policy, developing a Mobile Transformative Innovation Lab, exploring digitalisation rules of Deep Transition, and mobilising research groups on pragmatic policy for AI (in SPRU) and transitions in Global South (globally).
