My research interests incorporates prospects of comparative political economy of the Middle East. I focus on aspects related to economic history of state-institutions, local public good provision, informal social-welfare, and the political economy of Islamic institutions, with a regional focus of the Middle East. My research also draws on questions about how foreign policy tools, such as economic sanctions, interact with domestic politics. I am extremely interested in investigating aspects of the politics of information using methods of NLP and computational text analysis.
