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. I am also working on three paper projects that focus on public opinion in conflict, reconstruction of masculinity in  counterinsurgency, and post-conflict transitional justice processes. 

Originally from New Delhi, India, I was an undergraduate student in Political Science and Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley prior to joining Yale. During this time, I conducted research and fieldwork on the impact of conflict on gendered bodies, civil society in Indian insurgencies, and victim experiences with international transitional justice processes.
