About

I am a researcher, project manager, writer, and editor living in Decatur, Georgia. Recently, I have been focused on improving my data science skills, including statistical analysis and programming in R. Follow along with my progress on my blog.

Prior to moving to Georgia, I spent five years as a project manager at the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung’s New York office. RLS is a democratic socialist political education foundation closely affiliated with Germany’s Left Party. My primary responsibilities concerned socio-ecological transformation, particularly in relationship to the Global South, but I also worked on a variety of issues of concern to the European and North American Left.

My educational background is in South Asian religious studies and culminated in a PhD from Columbia University. Read more about my dissertation and scholarly publications on my research page.
