CID PhD Affiliate, Concentrations in Science and Technology Policy & Development Economics

Pariroo Rattan is a rising G4 in the PhD student in Public Policy program and affiliated with Harvard Kennedy School's Program on Science, Technology and Society (STS). Her doctoral work looks at how state-led efforts towards the digitization of the economy in India transforms economic subjectivity and citizenship, and explores the new regimes of value creation in a data economy. While her dissertation centrally looks at the Digital India initiative, she also works comparatively to think about how legal data regulation regimes are constructed and legitimized across the US, EU, and China. Apart from thinking about digitization, Pariroo is also interested in the politics of causal inference in the social sciences and music as a technology of social movements.
