I am a third year graduate student in the Department of Political Science. I am interested in understanding the development of political order during civil wars. I want to explore variation in the use of violent and non-violent repertoires by states to generate social control during violent conflict.
I have a BS in Computer Science from Pune University, India and an MA in Political Science from SUNY Binghamton. I have also worked in Observer Research Foundation, a New Delhi based think tank on counterinsurgency and foreign policy issues in South Asia.
