I am a Doctoral candidate in the History Department specializing in new economic histories in West Africa.

Currently, I am working on my dissertation topic that explores Indian mercantilism amidst colonial rule, decolonization, and independence in Ghana to situate Indians and their commercial activities within contemporary understandings of the social, economic, and cultural history of retail businesses in Africa. I do this mostly through an examination of Indian owned department stores in the twentieth century.

When I am not researching, I take photographs, workout, or simply try spontaneous baking
