I study Indian Ocean history, focusing on the late eighteenth- early nineteenth-century Bay of Bengal. My research currently focuses on intersections between competing Colonial Empires, maritime law and practices of Asian merchant groups. Related interests include, South and Southeast Asia interactions, maritime sovereignty, global intellectual history, history of international law and early nineteenth century legal thought.
