Anupriya Nag

Pearson Fellow Alum


Anupriya Nag, MPP'23, is a recent Harris School of Public Policy graduate. She worked as a research assistant at the Chicago Project on Security and Threats (CPOST). Her academic interests involve the human impact of security decisions and conflict in postcolonial or otherwise occupied states, with a regional focus on South Asia. In the past, these interests have driven her to examine drug abuse in Jammu & Kashmir, cultural displacement in Bengal, migration patterns between North Africa and Germany, and missile proliferation in Yemen.     

Prior to her time at the University of Chicago, Nag worked as a research fellow at Duco Advisors, a global risk advisory firm. There, she focused on technology policy, information warfare, ethnic conflict, and high-risk elections – helping prominent social media platforms and tech companies navigate complex international conflict, disinformation, and human rights concerns. Previously, she completed internships at Middlebury Institute of International Studies’ James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, and Stanford Law School. She also served as a research assistant in the international relations department at Pomona College, examining the future of Japanese militarism with Professor Tom Phuong Le.   

Nag holds a BA in international relations from Pomona College, and studied abroad in Germany. She speaks Bengali, Hindi, Spanish, and elementary German.
