Teaching Interests

My main teaching interests are at the intersection of comparative politics, public policy and political economy of development with a specific focus on the politics of policy making, poverty alleviation, donor aid, state capacity and government responsiveness in South Asia and other low and middle income states in the Global South.

Within the field of comparative politics, I look forward to teaching a variety of courses, at both the graduate and undergraduate level, focusing on political economy of development and underdevelopment, welfare politics, donor aid and development and grassroots politics in new democracies, and a variety of specialized courses on South Asian politics. I am also prepared to teach methodological courses on mixed methods research design and field research methods.
