Welcome! I am a Shorenstein postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2016.
I study the political economy of development, with a focus on inefficiencies of political organization. My book project and articles examine the historical and organizational roots of why parties succeed or fail at incorporating new groups in democratizing societies. A second set of projects investigates the industrial organization of public service delivery failure, including a series of surveys on agency problems between voters, bureaucrats, and politicians in India.
