I am a social and legal historian of pre-colonial South Asia. My research to date has focused on early modern religious institutions and urban society in pilgrimage towns in Rajasthan. At Exeter, I am part of the ERC-funded Forms of Law in the Early Modern Persianate World project led by Prof. Nandini Chatterjee and am researching the intersection of Persian and Rajasthani-language legal documents.

After I was awarded my PhD in History by the University of California, Berkeley in August 2018, I joined the University of Exeter as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. I received my BA in Asian Languages and Literature and Comparative History of Ideas from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2006.
