Research Interest

I graduated with Honors from New York University in 2019, majoring in Political Science. My undergraduate thesis focused on the post-WWI League of Nations, and how Woodrow Wilson's racial policies negatively impacted non-Western nations' integration into, and participation in the League.

During the summer between my junior and senior years, I interned at the Permanent Mission from India to the United Nations, in order to gain experience in International Relations. After graduation, I continued pursuing this interest by interning at the Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy headquartered in New York. These experiences made me realise that a strong historical foundation was necessary to gain a truly nuanced perspective on Empires and Post- Colonial World orders. I hope to further my knowledge and understanding of this field at both Columbia and the London School of Economics.
