About me

I am Anubhav Jha, a Ph.D. candidate at the Vancouver School of Economics, UBC. I will be joining Princeton Politics as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Formal Theory and Quantative Methods group from September of 2023.

My research lies in the intersection of Political Economy, Industrial Organization, and Marketing. In particular, I study political rallies from a strategic perspective, latent effects of interest group advertising in U.S. House elections, allocation of government portfolios in parliamentary democracies, and whether social media ads can be used to improve socio-economic outcomes.
