Ideas:
“  Welcome — I am an academy scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Harvard University. Starting Fall 2022, I will join Princeton University as an Assistant Professor in Politics and International Affairs. My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative politics, gender, and development with a regional focus in South Asia. I use natural, survey and quasi- experiments to examine important questions in the field of representation and accountability. My research is mainly set in the context of India, the World's largest democracy and I have collaborative projects in Ghana and Brazil. In particular, my research sheds light on deeply consequential yet overlooked aspects of gender and caste-gaps in political opportunity and examines “how” descriptive representation alters access to political opportunity and development for marginalized groups.  ”
