Personal Statement

I am a PhD candidate at the department of political science and a research associate at the Center on the Politics of Development at UC Berkeley. My broad research interests encompass political economy and development. My current projects aim to understand:

  1. women's political mobilisation and collective action,
  2. persistence and erosion of ideology in political parties,
  3. public service delivery in the context of decentralised governance, 
  4. historical origins of ethnic conflict, and
  5. voters' use of information to hold incumbent politicians accountable, and cumulative learning
