I have a PhD in South Asian Studies from King’s College London.
Over the past few years, my research has broadly covered how rising powers like China and India have been interacting with the international order by mapping and explaining their engagement in specific issue areas, like health, energy and finance. Some of the writings under this thread have appeared in Global Policy, Global Health Governance and Policy and Society and in edited volumes from Routledge and Oxford University Press. Also, I was one of the co-authors of a UNDP China policy report in 2013 that mapped and outlined China’s current role in various multilateral institutions and their interests across the global governance landscape.
Currently, I am working on a book manuscript that explores how India negotiates international rules in the international order, focusing on four particular rules – Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, Framework Convention on Climate Change, Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and the Uruguay Round Trade Agreement. More information is available here.
I am also the Founding Editor of Lekh: An Online Review of Books on South Asia.
I also hold an Honours B.A. in Public Policy and Politics from the University of Toronto.
