I am a fourth year political science PhD student specializing in Indian politics, comparative politics and political methodology.

My dissertation seeks to understand the effects of ethnic inequality  and status on the development of state capacity in Indian provinces. In particular, I am studying why India’s states have such varying abilities to tax their citizens and to what extent elite participation in building robust fiscal institutions depended on the caste make-up of the state and who they were competing against for electoral office. I am currently in the south of India collecting data on legislative voting patterns on taxation and caste in the Madras Presidency between 1910-1931.

More broadly, I am interested in party politics, ethnic politics, ethnic inequality, political participation and fiscal-capacity in Indian states.
