I am an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Comparative Politics at Durham University, UK, from 2017.


Prior to coming to Durham, I held fellowship positions at the Department of Political Science and at the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and at the Political Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania.


I was also a visiting scholar at the Alice Paul Centre at the University of Pennsylvania [2016-2017] and a visiting scholar at Nuffield College and Rothermere American Institute at Oxford University [2019].

I obtained PhD at the Department of Government at the London School of Economics in 2016. My dissertation [honourable mention, ECPG Best Dissertation Award] examined women's voting behaviour at the time of suffrage in the West. 

My primary research interests are in Comparative Politics. Broadly defined, my research covers topics in Historical Democratisation, Women in Politics & Methodology
