I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), concentrating in comparative politics and international relations. My research interests include political violence, ethnic conflict, and text-as-data, with a focus on South Asia. Prior to starting at MIT, I was a research assistant in the South Asia program at the Stimson Center. I graduated with a BA in Public Policy Studies and South Asian Languages & Civilizations from the University of Chicago. I am a recipient of the Critical Language Scholarship, National Security Language Initiative for Youth Scholarship, and NCAA All-Academic award. I have advanced proficiency in Urdu and Hindi, and basic knowledge of Arabic, Hebrew, and Spanish.
