HeadshotI am currently a PhD candidate at Yale University in the Department of Economics. In August 2019, I will be joining the Global Economies and Markets group at the Darden School of Business, University of Virginia as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests are at the intersection of development and labor economics and examines on the one hand, how large industrial policies affect firm behavior and on the other, how frictions in the labor market constrain job search, recruitment and hiring practices by workers and firms. I also study how policy reforms and new technologies can help mitigate these frictions. 

A secondary research agenda focuses on examining the evolution of traditional institutions in India over time and across policy reforms.
