Aditya Dasgupta

Welcome! I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, Merced. I completed my PhD at Harvard University and was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University.

My research interests are in comparative politics and political economy, with a focus on development, democratization, distributive politics, and organizations (political parties and bureaucracy). My current book project examines the disruptive impact of technological change on established parties, drawing on the green revolution as a historical natural experiment.

My research appears in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Economic History, and International Organization. Here is my CV. Thanks for visiting!
