I am a postdoctoral fellow at William & Mary’s Global Research Institute. Starting July 2022, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Division of Politics and Economics at Claremont Graduate University.
I study how emerging global trends, particularly urbanization and the growth of digital technology, affect political behavior in places where resources are scarce. Cross-cutting themes include housing, civic participation, mobile phone use, water supply, and gender. Current projects are based in India, Sri Lanka, and Malawi.
I completed my PhD in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley in May 2020. I also studied at Bowdoin College.
