Gareth Nellis

Assistant Professor of Political Science

Gareth Nellis specializes in comparative politics, political economy, and modern South Asia. His research focuses on political parties, in particular the origins and persistence of weakly institutionalized party systems, and the extent to which parties matter for key development outcomes. A second strand of work addresses the drivers of discrimination against internal migrants in fast-urbanizing settings.   

Nellis completed his PhD in political science at Yale University, and was previously the Evidence in Governance and Politics postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
