Hi! Welcome to my page!

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at Newcastle University in England. 

I am also a Research Affiliate at Institute of Labor Economics (IZA) and a Fellow at Global Labor Organization (GLO). I was previously a Research Fellow at UNU-WIDER in Helsinki, Finland. 

My fields of specialization are development economics, labour economics, and behavioural economics. Within these fields, I have three areas of interest: (i) education, skills and labour markets; (ii) political economy of development; and (iii) caste and gender-based disadvantage and discrimination. I use both observational and experimental data in my research. My work focuses mainly on India and Vietnam.
