Biography

I am a DPhil candidate at the Faculty of Law. My current research is in the area of constitutional theory studying the links between nationalism, constitutions, and constitutional identity. My doctorate is supervised by Professor Catherine O'Regan and Professor Nicholas Barber. My broad research interests lie in the intersection of public law and politics, constitutional democracy, and accountability institutions.

I was previously a Stipendiary Lecturer in Public Law at Pembroke College, University of Oxford where I taught Administrative Law and have taught the subject at various other Oxford colleges. My teaching interests are in Administrative Law, Constitutional Law and Theory, and Jurisprudence. 

Prior to beginning my DPhil, I was a civil servant in the Government of India, and was the Director of the National Academy of Audit and Accounts, India where I trained newly recruited civil servants, and taught law, public policy, and administration. I hold a Bachelor of Laws from the National University of Juridical Sciences and an LL.M from Harvard University where I was a Fulbright Scholar.
