Research interests

The politics of policy making, governance, and democratic accountability.


I received my Ph.D from the Department of Sociology at the University of Minnesota in 2020, where I was a Fellow at the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change. I hold an M.A in Sociology from the Delhi School of Economics, a B.A in English Literature from the University of York, and several years of work experience in policy research think tanks.

Researcher's projects

My post-doctoral research studies sites of knowledge production and networks of politics and policy at a transnational level. Currently, I am collecting and analysing data for a project that examines the deeply influential but little-known networks of the financially wealthy and politically organised Hindu-nationalist diaspora across the US, Europe and the UK. This study has implications for tracing the global entanglements of political behaviour, communication, and networks that influence both Indian and global politics.
