Associate Professor
Literature
CV Summary: 
I received my PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Irvine, where I wrote my PhD dissertation under the supervision of Professor J. Hillis Miller. I taught in the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and in the Department of Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of Minnesota before coming to IIT Delhi. At present I am most interested in learning and thinking at the intersections of political and psychoanalytic theory. Questions concerning the fate of democracy, the challenge of equality and the escalation of various forms of violence occupy me . For the past few years I've been engaged in studying the work of Bhagat Singh and his comrades. I teach courses on feminist theory, political theory, and Indian literature.
