Main details

"I found out about Goldsmiths while I was researching MA degrees in London after I had finished my undergraduate degree. Before I came to Goldsmiths, I worked in various organisations in India as a Fulbright Scholar from 2014 to 2015, and then lived in Washington DC and worked in consulting.

I loved the academic freedom that Goldsmiths offers, and the chance to explore topics that are related to my interests, and even topics that aren't. I absolutely loved London – it has an incredible energy and a DIY spirit, and living in London was incredibly inspirational for my writing and personal development.

While at Goldsmiths, I worked at the Imperial War Museum and at the cultural agency Culture+Conflict, both of which were incredibly formative experiences. I have also been writing freelance criticism for Artforum, ArtAsiaPacific, frieze, and other publications.

After completing my coursework, I moved back to New York to intern at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and I am currently the Spiegel-Wilks Curatorial Fellow at the ICA Philadelphia."
