I grew up in Calcutta, and studied at Jadavpur and Cambridge universities before coming to the University of Michigan for my doctoral work. My research interests are principally in early modern English literature, disability studies, Shakespeare, and Milton. Increasingly, I am interested also in computational methods of text analysis. I am also a climber and mountaineer, and work and write on world mountaineering literature. Visit my academic website here.
Food and photography are two other major interests!
