Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey y'all,

I'm a junior transfer student at Northwestern University majoring in sociology and legal studies with a focus on crime and justice. My research interests include mass incarceration, the revolving door phenomenon of prison recidivism, and the structural and systemic injustices present within the criminal justice system in the United States.

Outside of academics, I'm the president of Women in Law, undergraduate president of NU SPLASH, co-cultural chair for NU's South Asian Student Association, and director of external affairs for NU College Feminists. I also enjoy watching Bull, reading One Piece, and doing candid photography with my friends.

I can't wait to meet all of you and pick your brains. Come curious ~

H53: Win-Win Scenario: An Introduction to Negotiation in the Courtroom in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
To get what you want, you got to be able to ask for it. Whether it be a multi-million dollar business deal, a decade long fight for custody, or a crucial decision about whether to lock someone up for the rest of their days, negotiation is an invaluable skill to win the high risk, high reward cases that lawyers are presented with. Come be a part of an engaging simulation where you’ll be tasked with fighting on behalf of your client for a stake in the materials needed for a potentially life-saving drug. Think you have what it takes?

H442: The Euthyphro Dilemma: Learning to Read Plato and Why in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Alfred North Whitehead one said, “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.” The first time you hear this quote you scoff, and think, “he must be overstating the dude.” At least I thought that before my first political theory course, but the more political theory you read, the more you’ll see just how amazingly influential he has been on our thinking, even today. While the translations of his work are excellent, to really understand him requires learning context about the ways in which he said what he said and why. In this class, we will go over the Euthyphro to understand one of the first known arguments against religious government, how to read Plato, and see why he's important.
