People / Graduate Students
Ambika is a first-year PhD student in the German Department. Her central interests are related to multilingualism and translation. A secondary line of inquiry concerns literary reflections, particularly in the 19th century, of emerging ideas in scientific, mathematical and economic thought. She is also particularly eager to explore areas of overlap with Latin American Studies and South Asian Studies. Prior to joining Berkeley, she completed a Masters in Economics at the University of Arizona, and a Masters in German Studies at Vanderbilt University.
