Nirvikar Jassal

I am an  Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

My work explores criminal justice and police or judicial accountability. I also work closely with law enforcement agencies and bureaucrats, primarily in South Asia, to explore mechanisms that can make the criminal justice system more equitable, transparent, and representative. 

Before joining the LSE, I was a fellow at Stanford University's King Center on Global Development. Prior to academia, I worked at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York and served as an aide in the office of Mayor Michael Bloomberg. 

I hold a BA from Columbia (2010), an MSc from Oxford (2012), and a PhD from the University of California—Berkeley (2020).
