About me

I am a Graduate Research Assistant with Profs. Federico Rossi (Warwick) and Tommaso Porzio (Columbia); and with Profs. Wiji Arulampalam (Warwick) and Yu Aoki (Aberdeen). I am also a Teaching Assistant in Economics and Econometrics. In the past, I've tutored on EC109 and EC124 - for which I'd received a tutoring excellence award from the department.

I completed my MSc in Economics at Warwick, prior to which I had also completed my Diploma in Economics here. During the MSc, I worked as a Research Assistant at the department with Prof. Sonia Bhalotra. Before my time at Warwick, I worked as an offshore construction engineer. At various points in time, I've lived, worked and studied in India, UAE, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UK. My move to economics was and still is motivated by my research interests in social and economic welfare, broadly. I seek to work on a variety of research areas such as climate change, societal & wealth inequalities, labour economics, poverty alleviation, political economy and especially the various intersections between these areas. I am particularly interested in working on these through rigorous statistical analyses to generate credible evidence. For my MSc thesis, I studied the association between female autonomy and infant mortality in India, using the unsupervised machine learning tool of k-means clustering to model unobserved individual characteristics.

Research Interests

  • Applied Econometrics, Statistics and Data Science
  • Social and Economic Welfare topics at various intersections of: Climate change, inequality, transmission of international and national economic shocks, gender, development, labour and political economy.
