I co-teach the Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic at Yale Law School. Our clinic works with partner organizations on projects all over the world and on a range of issues, including civil and political rights as well as economic and social rights. Many of our projects involve development, business and human rights. We also do a great deal of work on criminal justice reform, including prisons and police. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how our clinic might support work by community and other organizations.

I am currently based in the United States, where I have been a fellow at Harvard's Center on the Legal Profession and taught on the legal profession at Yale Law School. Previously, I spent seven years in South Asia: clerking for the Indian Supreme Court, working at Human Rights Law Network, teaching law in India and Pakistan, and being a senior fellow at the Center for Policy Research. Whether in India or the U.S., my interests have centered on rights, grievance redress mechanisms, court administration, and legal empowerment.
