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 a labor economist and work primarily with issues in South Asia. My work also heavily intersects with health, gender, and behavioral economics. 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 employment guarantee make female infants less vulnerable to sex-selection during adverse productivity shocks? Can delaying marriage of women decrease their risk of HIV infection? 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.
