I'm currently Associate Fellow at the Takshashila Institution. My work covers a variety of areas, from history to networked societies and technology governance, and my writings have been published in Mint, The Print, The Deccan Herald, The New Indian Express, and Pragati. My book on the medieval Deccan will be published by Juggernaut in 2021. My next will be carried by Penguin Random House.


I aim to make critical scholarship on ancient and medieval India accessible to the public, with an emphasis on culture and society. I tackle nationalist-political rewritings of the history of one-sixth of humanity by emphasising the complicated, relatable lives that our ancestors lived. My podcast has been featured in The Hindu.

I'm available for commissioned writing, podcasts, and talks on a variety of topics. I've previously spoken and hosted events at the Bangalore International Centre and Bikaner House; conducted a workshop at the Mallya Aditi International School, Bangalore; and have made guest appearances on multiple podcasts, including Wonders of the World and The Musafir Stories
