Rohan's research and teaching interests are at the intersection of politics, culture and theory. His substantive engagements range from comparative urbanisms and globalization studies to critical media and visual culture. He teaches courses in urban politics, political theory and political economy at the undergraduate level and in aesthetics, critical theory and cultural studies at the graduate level.

Rohan is also a filmmaker, and has produced or directed several short documentary films that have screened in the US, Hawaii, India and elsewhere. He is currently co-directing a feature-length documentary on the French philosopher Alain Badiou. This film should be completed and released in 2017.
