Amulya is a graduate of NALSAR, Hyderabad and Stanford University. Between 2015 and 2017, she worked as a Graduate Fellow in the School of Policy and Governance at Azim Premji University in Bangalore where she assisted with teaching several courses for the masters programmes in development, public policy, and law. She also assisted with several research projects that applied interdisciplinary methods to the law in areas such as tribunalisation, crime victimisation surveys, appellate court workload, and legal aid in India. As a graduate student at Stanford, her research focussed on a narrative analysis of rape judgments delivered by the Supreme Court of India in the post independence years. Since returning to India, she briefly taught at NALSAR Hyderabad as an Assistant Professor (Ad-hoc) teaching elective courses titled "Suffering" and " Statistics for Lawyers". As a Samvidhaan Fellow, Amulya will write a book that analyses caste atrocities legislation and litigation through multi-disciplinary methods including archival work, narrative analysis of judgments, and interviews. The book will uncover the history of civil rights claims that have been at the heart of caste-atrocities cases. She hopes this will provide evidence that leads to legal reform so that these cases are adjudicated in their proper context and the promise of Article 17- the abolition of untouchability - is fulfilled.
