Palaash Bhargava

I am a fourth year graduate student in the department of Economics at Columbia University. Prior to joining Columbia, I was an Assistant Instructor of Economics at the New York University, Abu Dhabi. I am an applied microeconomist whose current research interests sit at the intersection of development, labour, behavioral and network economics. Within my work, I explore the influence of networks, culture and non-standard economic preferences on individual labour outcomes and aggregate institutions. Given the wide scope of applicability of these fields, I often work on topics that are closely related to economic history, cultural economics, social transmissions and human capital formation.
