About

IMG_0881I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.

I received a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Washington-Seattle in 2018, where Prof. Rachel M. Heath was my advisor. Previously, I received a M.Sc. in Economic Policy from the University College London, U.K., and a B.Sc. in Economics from Presidency College, Kolkata, India. Please view my Curriculum Vitae for more details.

Research: I am an applied microeconomist with a focus on labor and behavioral economics in the context of developing economies. The central theme of my work is the impact of public policy on women’s lives in developing countries. Some of the issues that I currently work on are: Are women more likely to choose their spouse if they have better job opportunities? Can delaying marriage of women decrease their risk of HIV infection? Do women police stations affect the female labor force participation? Please visit my research page for more details.

Teaching: I currently teach Labor Economics and Introduction to Statistics at Furman University. Please visit my teaching page for more details.
