PhD Candidate in Government, GSAS
Shom Mazumder is a doctoral student in the Department of Government at Harvard University. His primary research seeks to explain the conditions under which different types of policy interdependence matter. To tackle this research area, he integrates insights from game theory, political economy, network science, and experimental methods to better understand how policy interdependence works and why it matters. Moreover, he also works on the historical roots of contemporary political and economic development with a particular regional interest in South Asia. Prior to attending Harvard, Shom worked at Palantir Technologies as an Evangelism Fellow. Shom received his B.S. in Foreign Service from Georgetown University with a major in International Political Economy.
