Assistant Professor

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science & the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs. I am also a Faculty Associate at the Institute of Asian Research.

My area of specialization is comparative politics. Much of my work focuses on ethnic politics, public policy, and development. My research is primarily situated in Southeast Asia, especially Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar.

My research has appeared in various outlets and has been supported by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada, among others.
