Interview

What made you choose to apply at NLU Delhi? 

I was inspired by National Law University Delhi’s vibrant intellectual community and diverse research endeavours. I believe it is the most befitting institute to start a journey in legal research and academia in India. As an Academic Fellow, I have the opportunity to be nurtured by senior scholars at the University in research and teaching, as I develop necessary skills to contribute to legal academia.

What made you choose research and teaching as a career? 

Undertaking advanced legal studies made me realize that my inclination was towards exploring international law. By undertaking research and teaching in the said discipline, I can constantly engage in the process of learning, unlearning and relearning.

What is your area of interest, and what excites you about it? 

My broad areas of interest are International Law, Human Rights and Gender Studies. What excites me most about these areas is their growing relevance and importance in society especially in the face of relentless opposition and challenges to their foundational principles of co-operation and respect. In my opinion, this makes the need to research and teach these disciplines more important than ever.

How do you see yourself contributing to NLU Delhi as an Academic Fellow?

I am very excited to be a part of NLU Delhi’s intellectual family. As an Academic Fellow, I see myself contributing to the community by undertaking collaborative research projects, assisting in teaching responsibilities and working on timely and relevant concerns in the legal academic fraternity.
