Ganga has published work on the economic consequences of illiberalism, foreign aid, Russian nationalization, corruption and energy politics in Eurasia. She is currently working on a book manuscript dealing with the political determinants of switches between privatization and nationalization in Eastern Europe and beyond. This research bears directly on how we view the link between democracy and market capitalism, economic consequences of populism, rising illiberalism in recent political transitions and state capitalism.
Ganga holds a bachelor of arts in political science from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, in her hometown of Iasi in Romania, as well as an M.Sc. in global governance and diplomacy from Oxford University, where she was a Chevening fellow. After completing her Ph.D. at Georgetown University she was a postdoctoral research fellow at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute, a postdoctoral fellow at the Skalny Center for Polish and Central Eastern European Studies with Rochester University and a George F. Kennan short-term scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars.
