Early career scholar working on Refugees and Migration studies. I am interested in the area of international politics and foreign policy with a specific theoretical concern for understanding the refugees from alternate perspective in the context of global south. My broader interests cut across security studies, biopolitics, peace and conflict studies, great power politics and theories of international relations to name a few.
