Rashmi Barua

I teach economics at the Centre for International Trade and Development, Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi). Prior to that I have taught at the School of Economics, Singapore Management University and the Indian Statistical Institute, New Delhi. 

My primary areas of research are Economics of Education and Labor Economics with specific interest in gender issues. More recently I have also worked on international migration and the economics of crime.  

Most of my research has been a mix of methodological contributions, including randomized evaluations, and empirical applications that are guided by sound economic theory. 

A native of India, I received a Ph.D. in economics from Boston University in 2008.

I have published in refereed international journals including, Labour Economics, Economic Development and Cultural Change, Journal of Human Capital, Economics of Education Review and Journal of Pension Economics and Finance
