I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. I obtained my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University in 2018. My research interests lie at the intersection of international relations and comparative politics. I study the political economy of conflict and militancy in divided societies. Some of my research has been published or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Theoretical Politics and South Asia: Journal of South Asian Studies. I received a BA in Economics and Mathematics from New York University and an MPA in Public and Economic Policy from the London School of Economics.
