Arjun Mehrotra is a junior in the School of Foreign Service majoring in Regional and Comparative Studies, focusing on geoeconomics in Asia. He was born in New Delhi, grew up in Bangalore and Dubai and attended high school in Singapore. Arjun’s interest in research stemmed from development economics research he did in high school, where carried out interviews and collected data in Odisha, India, assessing the impact of education on the living standards of Adivasis (tribal groups in India). As a MURF, Arjun has worked under Dr. Charles Kupchan on research for a book on American foreign policy (viewed through a broad historical lens) and is currently working under Dr. Evan Medeiros on research about Asia. On campus, apart from dancing in Rangila, Arjun is also involved with the Georgetown India Initiative, Blue and Gray Tour Guides, and the Lecture Fund.
