I am Associate Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I teach courses relating to British colonialism in India, Indian nationalism and women and gender in Indian history. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2002 and was a Carol G. Lederer Postdoctoral Fellow at the Pembroke Center at Brown University (2004-2005) and a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress Kluge Center for Research (2005-2006) before joining the UIC faculty in 2006. I earned my BA in English in 1992 from the University of Michigan where I attended the Residential College.
