I'm a doctoral candidate in political science at Yale University. My areas of concentration are political theory, comparative politics, and qualitative methods. I'm primarily interested in studying the transformations in political thought caused by worldwide European imperial expansion since the seventeenth century.

During my time at Yale I've held the Evans Hemingway and Edwin Safford Reid Fellowships, the Kraus Fellowship at the Beinecke Library, and fellowships at the Lewis Walpole Library and the Center for the Study of the History of Political Thought, Queen Mary University of London.

My research has been supported by, among others, the Smith-Richardson Foundation, the Whitney & Betty Macmillan Center for International and Area Studies, and the South Asian Studies Council at Yale.

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.
