My primary research agenda explores the myriad ways in which conflict and elections intersect, with a regional focus on South Asia and Bengal, in particular. In my research, I employ a mixture of qualitative historical analysis, ethnography, and quantitative methods. During the 2018-19 academic year, I studied Bangla in Kolkata, India, in an intensive language program held by the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS).
