I am a first year doctoral researcher at the University of Exeter. I am working on a project funded under the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Collaborative Doctoral Partnership designed by Exeter in collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford. The project is titled “Decolonising Collections: Uncovering British and Indian collectors’ networks behind British numismatic collections”. I am researching knowledge formation networks and the role of Indians in the history of coin collecting in colonial India. I have work experience as a researcher in cultural and heritage organisations in India, which has allowed me to develop strong research and writing skills. I am passionate about disseminating my research to wider audiences, an interest I have pursued through volunteering and different kinds of publications. I am interested in a career within the academic or arts, culture, and heritage sector.
