About Me

Aditi Malhotra

Hi, Welcome to my webpage.

I am Aditi, a PhD Candidate at the Graduate School of Politics (GraSP), University of Münster, Germany. My thesis concentrates on the evolution of India’s security role in the Indo-Pacific region. My areas of interest include strategic and security issues related to South Asia, India’s foreign and security policy towards Indo-Pacific region (with a specific focus on Southeast Asia and East Asia), nuclear proliferation and nuclear security issues.

From Dec 2012 to Jan 2015, I was a Senior Research Fellow in the International Strategic and Security Studies Programme (ISSSP) at the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore, India. Prior to joining NIAS, I was an Associate Fellow at the Centre for Land Warfare Studies (CLAWS), New Delhi (Mar 2010- Oct 2012). While at CLAWS, I was the Editor of Scholar Warrior, a bi-annual Journal of the institution.

I hold a Master’s degree in International Studies from the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom with a dissertation concentrating on ‘Nuclear Security: The Case of Pakistan.’
