I am a postdoctoral fellow at William & Mary’s Global Research Institute. Starting in July 2022, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Division of Politics and Economics at Claremont Graduate University.

I study how policies in low- and middle-income countries, particularly those related to housing and digital technology, affect economic, social, and political behavior. My regional expertise is in urban India, but I am also beginning to study sub-Saharan Africa.

My research is forthcoming or published in the Journal of Politics, the Journal of Development Economics, and World Development. Check out some media coverage of this work in The Washington Post, The Times of India, and this podcast.

I completed my PhD in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley in May 2020. I also studied at Bowdoin College. I have been named a Susan Clarke Young Scholar and won a Best Dissertation Award (Honorable Mention) from APSA’s Urban and Local Politics Section.
