I am a doctoral candidate in Political Science (Comparative Politics) at Binghamton University (State University of New York).
I do theory-driven quantitative research. My broader goal in Comparative Politics is to understand how the organization of political process affects political outcomes — the economic development, social stability and welfare. Since elections are a key component of democratic politics, most of what I do deals with the organization of electoral process, which can be broadly defined as including electoral institutions, party organizations and political finance. I enjoy working on the projects that involve methodological innovation and take particular interest in politics of South Asia.
