Chetana is a fourth year student in the Political Science department. She is broadly interested in state formation processes, gender and sexuality politics and political violence. Her research project looks at various states’ gender ideologies and their association with enforced hierarchies of different sexual relations (e.g. marriage, relations involving “sex workers”, same-sex relations, etc.). Her work draws insights from various disciplines, ranging from anthropology to economics. Outside of research, she enjoys reading contemporary fiction and watching mindless TV shows. As a Fellow, she is excited to work with graduates on their writing projects, and help them discover their writing styles.
