I am a bit of a renegade, constantly trying to escape social labels. I trained as an economist and am now trying to grow up and be a real world social scientist. I have a touch of radical and a touch of pragmatist within me. Don’t trust me, just read me.
I obtained my PhD at LSE under the supervision of Prof. Maitreesh Ghatak and Prof. Oriana Bandiera. I got my Bachelors at Hindu College and Masters at Delhi School of Economics at Delhi University. Both in Economics. I also have a MA (Cantab) from Cambridge.
My research is primarily focussed on microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, with a smattering of empirical work thrown in for good measure. My research papers can be found here and here. If there is one paper you would like to read, it should be the paper on automation and how it is likely to impact our social and economic system in the long-run. Or the one on why there are still so many poor countries trapped in the poverty trap.
I am enthusiastic about programming, web designs and Argentinian tango. Which just means that I try hard and often fail. The occasional success keeps me going. And everything I learnt about the art of living, I learnt from Frasier.
