I'm a researcher and freelance writer from Bombay, currently based in Brooklyn. My published writing, available on this site, covers literature, history, art and architecture, women, cities, politics, and culture. I have an M.A. in Cultural Reporting and Criticism from the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, and am a fact-checker at The New Republic, a writer and editor for Nearpod, an interactive learning company, and a former Andrew Mellon Editorial Fellow at Lapham's Quarterly. I also work as an assistant to author and journalist Gay Talese.
