I'm a doctoral candidate in political science at Yale University. I previously studied political science and international relations at Jadavpur University, and read political theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I was a Commonwealth Scholar.

My areas of concentration are political theory, comparative politics, and qualitative methods, and I'm primarily interested in learning about two interrelated processes: how empires affect ideas about concepts and how concepts are formed in the colonial and metropolitan imagination.
