Photo_Oct2018I am currently a PhD candidate at Yale University in the Department of EconomicsMy research interests are at the intersection of development and labor economics. 

My research examines on 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 examine 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.

I will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings at Atlanta in January 2019.
