- The India-Pakistan-Afghanistan triangle
I am a PhD scholar in international relations, with a focus on security studies and the South Asian region. I have a professional background in security risk analysis; however, my academic interests are evolving towards embracing a more critical approach to security studies and exploring the role of emotions in IR and feminist perspectives on the discipline. While my empirical comfort zone encompasses the Afghanistan-Pakistan-India sub-region, I hope to expand my interests westwards and undertake future projects that increase my understanding of the politics of Turkey and Iran.
My MA in international relations is from the University of Warwick.
I have worked for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and for Control Risks-International SOS.
