Adi Dasgupta — Political Scientist

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Merced. I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University and earned my PhD from Harvard University.

I study the political economy of development and democratization, with a focus on inefficiencies within political organizations. My research has been published in the Journal of Economic History and International Organization. Here are links to my CV, book project on party collapse, and papers. Email me at: adasgupta [at]
