Personal profile

Willing to supervise doctoral students

Economics of Corruption and Governance, Inequality, Vulnerability and Poverty

 

Research interests

I work in the broad area of development economics. One of my long-standing research interests is the study of governance and corruption in the context of economic development. I use theoretical, empirical and experimental methods to understand corruption and to work towards better corruption-control mechanisms. I also work on the conceptualisation and measurement of vulnerability.  I have worked on issues related to inequality and its ramifications. 

Teaching interests

I teach Development Economics at various levels. Besides this, I teach core microeconomic theory courses. I am developing a course on law and economics.
