I research local and global challenges in the political economy of development, water policy and politics, civil society and accountability, and climate change.


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M University. I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University in May 2019. I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University during 2019 - 2020.
