About

My interests lie in the creation of Modern India, urban planning, heritage, and trade. As an undergraduate student, my research focused on the history of India’s post-colonial political economy, and how Indian politicians, under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru, reconciled contrary ideas of national unity, stability and state planning with liberal democracy and individual rights. Currently, I am exploring the intersection of trading communities in Bombay. I specifically want to examine how community is created, and how trade facilitates or hinders relations across ethnicities, religions, castes and class, and how globalisation, big businesses, and e-commerce have undermined or changed these relationships.
 
I recently graduated from Stanford with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in History, and minors in Psychology and Political Science. I’ve worked in various fields from policy, to journalism, entrepreneurship and more.
