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. 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 politics of public service provision, distributive politics, democratic accountability and local governance. My research has been published, or is forthcoming, in The American Journal of Political Science, The British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Peace Research and Journal of Theoretical Politics and my book has been published with Cambridge University Press (2016). Please see my research page for more information.
