Kunal Mehta CC'15 – Global Scholar'13
Kunal is a rising junior and economics major. His academic interests include international relations, macroeconomic policy, and global trade. He is especially interested in examining how diverse political, historical, and social institutions interact with and shape the forces of development and trade. Kunal’s past work experiences include addressing issues of strategic policy and foreign relations at think tanks in Mumbai and Washington, DC, as well as writing on geopolitics and economic inequality for various publications. Outside of his area of specialization, Kunal is also passionate about history, linguistics, and the French language. He hopes that traveling to Chile and China this summer will yield insights into how different societies and governments conceptualize progress. In the future, Kunal aspires to combine his technical knowledge with an informed cultural perspective to directly influence economic reform and growth policy in the developing world, particularly in his home country of India.
