I am a scholar of modern South Asia and global history. Currently I am Associate Professor in the Department of History at William Paterson University. I received a PhD from Emory University, and a BA from the University of Toronto. My research explores questions of agrarian change, labor politics, caste hierarchy, postcolonial critique and global capitalism. My first book, Labors of Division: Global Capitalism and the Emergence of the Peasant in Colonial Panjab, will be published by Stanford University Press in early 2024. My scholarly and public writings have appeared in venues such as Past and Present, the Journal of Asian Studies, Economic and Political Weekly, Outlook, Al Jazeera, Scroll, Law and Political Economy Project, Borderlines and Trolley Times.
