Hi, Welcome to my site! I completed my PhD in Quantitative Economics from Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi. I am currently a visiting faculty at Ashoka University and will be joining as High Meadows Post-Doctoral Economics Fellow at Environmental Defense Fund, NY in 2021. I also worked as an Associate Fellow in Development Economics vertical at Brookings Institution India Center for 2 years (2018 to 2020).

My research interests lie in environmental and health economics. In my job market paper I explore the relationship between in-utero exposure to outdoor air pollution and child health (in India). I also did an impact evaluation of information campaign about arsenic contamination to assess its link to marriage patterns in rural Bangladesh. In my other papers I have explored how crop burning patterns are associated with cardiovascular health and adolescent height.
