  • About

    I study modern South Asia, with a specific focus on histories of imperialism, undivided Bengal, Islam in South Asia, and gender. I’m currently interested in looking at the historiography on how Muslim women in Bengal have been written about as well as how Indian women were navigating the spaces of social reform during the interwar period.
