Kathleen Stephens on 6 June 2014 took charge as US interim Ambassador to India.

She took charge just ahead of India's first official engagement with Washington in the form of a visit by assistant secretary for south and central Asia Nisha Biswal.

Stephens is replacing the former US Ambassador Nancy Powell. Nancy Powell had left India on 22 May 2014 after announcing the end of her tenure in March 2014.

She will head the US mission until a new permanent ambassador is nominated and confirmed by the US Senate.
