About Me


Welcome! Starting August 2016, I am an Assistant Professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Previously, I was Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC. I obtained by Ph.D. from the Department of Politics at New York University in 2010. I specialize in comparative politics and political economy with an emphasis on India. The substantive questions that drive my research have to do with the political economy of development, democratic accountability and local governance. My ongoing projects use fine-grained data to examine the politics of infrastructure provision in India. Please see my research page for more information.
