Welcome. I’m a PhD candidate in political science at Yale University. My research is on the political economy of democracy and redistribution, with a regional focus on South Asia. My papers are published in The Journal of Politics and International Organization, among other journals.

I was born and raised in India. I have a BA in economics from Colby College and an MA from the Social Sciences Division at the University of Chicago. Previously I worked at Innovations for Poverty Action, a leading economics research organization, and at the Sustainable Engineering Lab at Columbia University. I teach in Yale’s political science department and business school.

My CV is available here. In case you would like to get in touch, you can reach me at Thanks for visiting.
