Gargi Vyas

Office Hours

As detailed in syllabi, and by appointment


I study international cooperation, specifically in the context of economic sanctions. I have also conducted research on sanction coalition formation and foreign policy behavior of coalition governments, and use social network analysis for many of my projects.

I am teaching Global Peacebuilding, Asian Politics, and Comparative Politics in Fall 2021. 

I love to hike, cook, buy too many plants, and spend as much time as I can with my two dogs and one grumpy hedgehog.
