Areas of Research/Study:
An architect and Urban Planner by training, Sheuli Mitra has been involved in both teaching and professional work in Architecture and Planning.
The research work areas include urban planning, with focus on urban renewal, transportation and real estate.
The work on urban renewal and slum upgradation has been one area of research which has been initiated at the undergraduate level where the B. Arch thesis was based on research on “Revitalisation of Sobhabazar Rajbari Area’ and has resulted in many publications and research continuing till date, presented at national and international forums. Professional work includes working on Slum Upgradation for twenty one cities of Karnataka.
Research on Transportation began with the M. Plan thesis at IIT Kharagpur on ‘Assessing the demand and Planning for Light Rail Transit (LRT) for Kolkata’. The work on transportation was taken forward as a consultant to various transportation feasibility and planning projects in the State of Karnataka, including the feasibility and design of integrated bus terminals in Bangalore and in several other towns of Karnataka.
More recent research and professional work is in the field of Real Estate and Land Economics. The initiation into this work started as a professional, heading the Real Estate Research Consultancy works of Jones Lang LaSalle in Eastern India, where numerous research and consultancy works for both Government and private clients was undertaken. This area of work has continued to be of interest and is currently the Ph.D. research domain along with related urban issues.
