Research interests

I am a historian trained in both South and Southeast Asian History. My Ph.D. dissertation is titled: “Constructing the Indian Immigrant to Colonial Burma 1885-1948.” Beyond India and Burma, my research interests relate to networks of circulation: people, commodities and ideas in the Indian Ocean region both in the early modern and the modern period.

Before arriving at Union College, I was a Post-Doctoral Associate and Lecturer, Inter-Asia Program, Yale University (2013-14).

Teaching interests

I teach a range of survey and seminar courses on both South and Southeast Asia and histories of migration in these parts of the world.
