Programme: BA History, 2012

Current Position: Social Science Editor, World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press, Singapore

Country: Singapore

I am a social science editor with World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press. I've always been interested in going into the publishing industry and being a history graduate has not been of any disadvantage to me in applying for work experience/jobs in this field. In fact, my background and interest in history has opened a lot of doors for me and I have fortunate enough to edit many books related to my interests in Middle East history and current affairs. I have also been able to meet a lot of academics, consultants and intellectuals to discuss publishing opportunities-- to sum up, bringing history and political science topics to life and to print has been very rewarding so far!

Graduate Degrees (MSc)


Programme: MSc History of International Relations, 2015

Current Position: Corporate News Writer,  The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)

Country: India

I am currently a Corporate News Writer/Companies Analyst with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). I cover news on companies in various sectors such as automotive, telecommunications and consumer goods. I graduated from LSE in 2015 and headed back to India to contribute to the field of journalism here. I started my career as a Sub-editor at an online youth portal, heading to two other startups before joining the EIU in October 2016. My skills as a researcher and writer which I honed at LSE helped me tackle the challenging role of a business journalist at EIU with ease. I also work as a Reporter for Fair Observer, an American publication. I am currently developing my own website which seeks to educate the Indian youth on politics and political processes in India. My LSE history degree helped me to broaden my world-view and be a conscientious reporter. During my time at LSE, I wrote for the Students@LSE and SouthAsia@LSE blog. I also helped set up the Houghton Street Review (HSR). LSE opened the doors to the world for me, and I hope to share my experience with fellow and aspiring students from both India and abroad.
