My name is Rini, and I am entering my 2nd year of my PhD program in the Department of Law and Public Policy. I am Canadian by birth and Indian of origin. I went to the University of Toronto for my Bachelors, where I was extremely involved in student politics as President of the Faculty Student Council for 2 years and the university-wide student union for a year. After I graduated I ran for public office in the Ontario Provincial elections and Canadian Federal elections respectively. My current research work focuses on healthcare related policy-making.
My hobbies include - politics, reading, singing, dancing and cooking.
I believe that one must take an interest in their surroundings and the community they live in, in order to live a holistic existence. This is why I got involved in the GSG as soon as I got my bearings in my new home – the city of Boston. I really do hope that we will get to meet you and your friends at one of our many events that we are planning this year. Please feel free to drop by the office during our office hours to let us know if you have any suggestions, questions or even if you feel like a quick chat. I personally, would love to meet graduate students at NEU and work on building a strong graduate student community together.
