Economics Ph.D. Student and General Secretary, Hindu Students Council

Above all, I am a seeker of the truth-- whether as a student of economics, as a follower of dharma, or as a general observer of this beautiful world. But all that thinking gets heavy, so sometimes I like to paint, cook, read, and binge watch TV shows, as well. I graduated from Princeton University with my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics in 2015 and have stayed here to pursue a Ph.D. in economics. Since the Global Dharma Conference in 2015, I have been serving as General Secretary to the Hindu Students Council-- the largest Hindu youth organization in North America. I've been a contributor to the Huffington Post since 2012.
