I study insurgency and post-conflict politics with a regional focus on South Asia. For my dissertation, I am collecting data on the ethnic politics of counterinsurgent deployment in colonial and Indian civil wars using historical and ethnographic methods.
Originally from New Delhi, India, I was an undergraduate student in Political Science and Public Policy at the University of California prior to joining Yale. During this time I conducted research and fieldwork on the impact of conflict on gendered bodies, civil society dynamics in Indian insurgencies and victim experiences with international transitional justice processes.
