Hi! I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of South Carolina, Columbia. In a previous avatar, I have been an assistant professor of law and a tax lawyer in India. My main area of research centers around the empirical analysis and evaluation of judicial institutions. For my dissertation, I develop and apply a cross-national time-series measure of judicial legitimacy of court systems in over 150 countries. My research interests also include legal education in India, the conflict between legal and religious obligations as well as the interpretation of procedural rights in the Indian constitution.
