My name is Aditya Kumar. I am completing my Master’s degree in International Relations from Jindal School of International Affairs. My research areas include China’s aggressive rise within the international dynamics, the US foreign policy and the functioning of the internal states with regards to the external forces in the Middle East. I’ve previously interned as a junior editor at Quint, which has helped me in understanding the drawbacks of information outlay and sorting out pressing issues that needs to be published. At RLA, my focus will be on US-China relations and the impact of Chinese foreign and domestic policies on social, economic and political factors.
