Welcome! I conduct research in comparative and international political economy, and focus primarily on the politics of democracy and redistribution. I serve as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, where I am a faculty affiliate of the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation and the Center for International Development. My CV is available here. In case you would like to get in touch, you can reach me at gnair@hks.harvard.edu.

Born and raised in India, I received my PhD with distinction from Yale University, and previously worked at Innovations for Poverty Action and the Sustainable Engineering Lab at Columbia University.
