Personal Statement

I am PhD student in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. I am interested in studying changing citizen state relationships with the proliferation of technology in welfare service delivery in South Asia. In that context, I am also keen to explore the idea of dignity among right holders. Beyond my primary research interest, I also wish to understand the relationship between Adivasis (tribals) and Muslims in the times of right-wing assertion in India.

I hold a Masters in International Development Policy from Duke University, a Masters in Public Policy & a Bachelors in Economics from University of Mumbai. In the past I have worked as a researcher with LibTech India, an organization focused on improving public service delivery, in collaboration with several people’s movements and campaigns in India.
