Adele Perera
Program and Publications Assistant

Adele graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Genetics and Plant Biology in 2014.  She is excited to be joining the Insitute for South Asia Studies and looks forward to learning more about diverse South Asian cultures.  She is interested in the complexity of social justice and the variations within different South Asian regions and communities, and how different power structures change when viewed through Western and non-Western lenses.
