Hi, I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Economics at the Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE) in France.

Prior to joining AMSE, I completed my PhD at University of Warwick in 2017 under the supervision of Francesco Squintani and Dan Bernhardt. My thesis committee consisted of Antonio Cabrales and Helios Herrera.

My research interests are broadly in the field of Information Economics and Political Economy. Currently, my research agenda comprises of broadly two parts:

The first part of my research focuses on informational incentives in international alliances (a la NATO, PESCO). The main questions of interest pertain to the relationship between information transmission/aggregation and constraints, the value of binding commitments, and the informational rationale for contributing to an alliance.

The second part of my research focuses on the role of group identity on political competition and conflict. Our research looks into how group identities shape the bargaining processes during elections and exacerbate post-election conflict outcomes.
