Summer Internship at the Wilson Center by Uzair Sattar (A’21) Nov 23

This summer, I interned as a research intern at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars think tank, located in Washington, D.C. I was working under the mentorship of Mr. Michael Kugelman, Deputy Director of the Asia Program and Senior Associate for South Asia.

I was familiar with Mr. Kugelman’s work on South Asia before joining the Wilson Center. He has written and spoken extensively, covering topics from U.S. policy in South Asia to terrorism to water, energy, and food security in the region. He regularly appears as an analyst on local news stations in Pakistan and India, making him a familiar name in South Asian policy circles. I reached out to him for the first time in my freshman summer. He had done work on Pakistan’s water crisis, and I was interested in interviewing him for my summer research project on the same topic. Since then, we kept in touch, and I was delighted when I found out that I would be working with him for my summer internship this year.
