I am the inaugural Gerhard Casper Postdoctoral Fellow in Rule of Law at the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law in Stanford University. I received my PhD in political science at the University of Rochester in 2022, and I am broadly interested in political economy of development. My work has appeared (or is forthcoming) in the American Journal of Political Science, The Quarterly Journal of Political Science, and Comparative Political Studies. I use a wide range of methods to study the judiciary, women in politics, political institutions, and bureaucracies. If you want to talk more about my work, or just say hi, please get in touch. My email is: varunkr [AT] stanford [DOT] edu
