Affiliations and Achievements:
I was privileged to be a part of the research publication “Capitalizing on the Power of Knowledge”, an extensive research paper, whose core focus area was on:
• The Higher Education market in India; its potential both in terms of human capital, as well as financial return on investment
• The future of higher education in terms of harnessing India’s invaluable human capital to create a knowledge driven economy, that the nation can tap into as it looks to transform from a soft power to a hard power.

I have also completed an internship with the Centre for Security Analyses (Chennai), culminating in a thought paper on the Balkan conflict.

I have presented a paper at the 2005 ISA Midwest Conference held at Missouri titled " SAARC and ASEAN in comparative perspective."
