PRESIDENT | AKASH LODH
Akash is a senior studying Economics, focusing on the political economy and foreign policy of India & Southeast Asia. He believes passionately in the value of open debate and dialogue in constructing freer societies. He's spent time working for the American Enterprise Institute, the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, FTI Consulting, and CNN. He tries to explain cricket to anyone around, and tweets a lot.

 

 


VICE PRESIDENT | HUNTER NASH
Hunter is a senior studying Public Policy in the College of Arts and Science on a Pre-Med track. In his spare time, you can find him listening to podcasts in the Park or quoting his favorite philosophers, from Tony Soprano to Louis CK.



 

 

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF | MARY AKDEMIR
Mary is a junior studying Philosophy and Global Liberal Studies. Her interests surround the status of indigenous minorities in the Middle East, with a focus on human rights and endangered languages. When she's not busy reading that article you just submitted to The Review, she's probably blaring the music of an unfortunately named lo-fi indie band to the dismay of everyone around her.

As an avid fan of both participating in and observing debates, she believes in the power of organized discourse to form a more empathetic society. In her free time she enjoys rereading her favorite novels and exploring NYC in pursuit of cheap dumplings.

TREASURER | DEEPAK WARRIER
Deepak, a sophomore reading Global Liberal Studies and Economics, believes that informed discourse makes for vibrant societies. When he is not managing the club’s finances, he likes to go on bike rides around the city. An ardent lover of coffee, he is seldom seen without a cup of joe in hand.


 

 


SECRETARY | JENNIFER DUBOIS
Jenny is a junior studying Economics and Computer Science. As secretary, she handles the club's administrative tasks. She has a tough time deciding between pretending to understand algorithmic trading on Reddit, napping, or scrolling through memes.
