“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”

I’m a junior at Yale from Karachi, Pakistan. I’m interested in pharmaceutical chemistry, international security and history of revolutions and hope to pull off a Chemistry and Global Affairs double major. On campus, I am on the Board of Directors for the Yale International Relations Association, dance with the South Asian dance group MonstRAASity and consult for the Elmseed Enterprise Fund. After college, I hope to work in business consulting and perhaps ultimately move on to intellectual property law or pharmaceutical research. In my free time, I enjoy watching Game of Thrones, discovering new dessert places in New Haven and playing badminton.
