Adi Dasgupta — Political Scientist


Welcome! I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, Merced. I completed my PhD at Harvard University and was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University.

My research interests are in comparative politics, political economy, development, democratization, and organizations — especially political parties and bureaucracy. My book project examines the disruptive impact of technological change on established parties, drawing on the green revolution as a historical natural experiment.

My research appears in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Economic History, and International Organization. Here is my CV. Thanks for visiting!
