I am a PHD candidate in Comparative Politics at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests lie at the intersection of Political Economy and Political Psychology. My research investigates determinants and attitudes towards social mobility and inequality and how societal upward mobility is linked to political attitudes and democracy. Before coming to Berkeley, I worked in International Development in South Asia including with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), World Bank Group and with the UK Department for International Development (DFID). I have a Masters in Economics and Public Policy from Princeton University, and a Bachelors in Engineering from NSIT, Delhi University.
