About Me

I am an  Assistant Professor, International Political Economy at SAIS – Johns Hopkins.

I specialize in the comparative politics of developing countries with a focus on inequality, fiscal capacity, ethnic politics, and Indian politics; as well as political methodology with a focus on multilevel statistical techniques. My dissertation and journal articles demonstrate how different forms of inequality — economic, ethnic, social — structure political behavior, and impact redistributive institutions.

I teach classes on Indian Politics and Comparative Politics.

My papers have been accepted for publication in World Politics, American Journal of Political Science, Party Politics and Asian Survey. You can read my CV here.
