About

Currently, I am working at the Foundation of Agrarian Studies (FAS) as their Events and Communications Coordinator. I also host their Young Scholars' Corner podcast that attempts to put researchers of rural India on the mic. I have also written for the #FASBlog.

For my Masters' dissertation, I researched the topography of sound in 19th century British South Asia with a specific focus on the intimate lives of labouring women, the colonial medical apparatus, and anti-war mobilizations in the subcontinent.

I have written for Citizen Matters- the Mumbai chapter, and the Bengaluru chapter. You can also find my bylines in Firstpost, Incurato, and The World of Apu. I have also contributed to Hazine Archive's Music in Research Series.

During my time at Akademi Magazine, I commissioned and edited various pieces and also penned an essay on sex work in colonial Bengal. I hosted and produced the #AkademiTalks podcast where I interviewed independent thinkers from multidisciplinary backgrounds.
