I am an India qualified lawyer and have worked in trade policy for the Indian government for a year after law school. Having completed my Cambridge LLM (2019-2020) with a distinction-winning thesis on ontology of data supervised by Professor Simon Deakin, I am expanding my research at the Centre. My research mostly focuses on the broader questions of whether law is computable and how AI can help solve the foundational issues with the way law interacts with society. Outside of Cambridge, I have been appointed as a research fellow with the Singapore Management University (2020-2021) to explore the practical implications of technology integration in mediation and other alternative dispute resolution processes.
