Gourav Krishna Nandi
Gourav Krishna Nandi is a third-year PhD student in History of Science and Medicine. My research interests are in the history of public health in India broadly between 1940 and 1960. In particular, my research hopes to tie together the local histories of health in post-partition Bengal and the global histories of early Cold War collaborations around health expertise and technology between India, US and the Soviet bloc, within the broader politics of medicine and health in early postcolonial India. Before coming to Yale, I completed an MPhil from Cambridge, where I worked on post-Cold War politics of the polio eradication campaign in India.
