GPEP Fellow (2020-2021)
Aditi is an Assistant Professor in Political Science at Wellesley College. Her research specializes in international political economy with a focus on global governance, the politics of international finance and central banking. Her dissertation explains why central banks choose to arrange and use swap lines in some crises and not others. She explores this question from a comparative historical perspective, tracing the use of bilateral central bank swaps from the interwar 1920s to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. Some of her work is published in the Review of International Political Economy. Her writing has also appeared in The Washington Post’s Monkey Cage.
Her research has been funded by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, the Social Science Research Council, the Cornell University Graduate School and the Mortara Center for International Studies at Georgetown University. Prior to joining Wellesley, Aditi received her PhD in Government from Cornell University in 2021 and was a Global Political Economy Project (GPEP) Pre-doctoral Fellow at the Mortara Center for International Studies, Georgetown University in 2020-2021. Before that, she worked as a researcher at The Bretton Woods Project, in London. Aditi has an MSc in International Political Economy from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and an (undergraduate) MA in Economics and Politics from the University of Edinburgh.
