Biographical statement

I am a Fellow in the Deparment of Political and Social Change. I was previously Assistant Professor of Political Science at Trinity College Dublin (2012-13) and received my PhD in political science from Yale University in 2013. My research and teaching is focused on comparative political economy. My first book, Populism and Patronage: Why Populists Win Elections in India, Asia, and Beyond was published with Oxford University Press in 2017. I teach courses in comparative politics at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
