Personal profile

Research interests

My research is located in the fields of comparative politics, political economy, and South Asian politics/area studies. I have an interest in the topics of parties and party system change, with a focus on the impact of the leadership on change.

In the area of political economy I have completed work on the economic narratives used to construct national identities and justify policy. 

I have an interest in national and regional politics in India. My work on national politics has covered elections, democracy and foreign policy. My work on regional politics focuses on the southern state of Tamil Nadu where I have looked closely at a range of issues including party politics, religion, and caste.
