I teach history at Carnegie Mellon University. My research explores the history of social movements in the United States and India. I direct the Bajaj Rural Development Lab, a collaboration with an NGO working to end poverty in the villages surrounding Mahatma Gandhi’s last ashram. I bring students to India with the Social Change Semester, and direct SocialChange101.org, a free online course and workshop series. I also participate in the Arts Greenhouse, a hip hop education program. My work reflects my own past, as well as my dreams for the future. Please feel free to contact me.
