About Me: My research focuses on the political economy of development, gender equality, and legal institutions’ impact on social conventions. My work combines extensive field research in South Asia and West Africa with econometric analysis of survey data, geospatial analysis of political, economic and social behavior, and historical analysis of reforms’ origin. My teaching at the undergraduate level mainly consists of advising honors theses in the senior research seminar of the Politics Honors major.
