A philosophy student of Indian origin, Amia Srinivasan, on Thursday joined a select band of scholars that includes the Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, when she was elected a Fellow of at Oxford University’s prestigious All Souls College.

The college said she studied at Yale University before coming to Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar in 2007.

The fellowship is offered to two young scholars every year but this year she was the only one who was accepted from among more than 100 candidates. Her selection was based on an in-depth examination.
