Personal Statement: 

I am a PHD candidate in Comparative Politics at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative politics and public policy. Broadly, I am interested in investigating the political conditions under which developing country governments implement pro-poor or egalitarian public policy. 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.
