I am currently researching the institutional development of party systems and democracy in South Asia under the supervision of Dr Rekha Diwakar and Prof Paul Webb. My research is funded by the by the university's Chancellor’s International Research Scholarship and looks at how political parties in South Asia use state resources to maintain party organisations through patronage and clientelism. I've previously worked on security and governance issues in Africa and I'm broadly interested in comparative democratic development and the strengthening of political institutions.
