Personal profile

Research interests

My research is positioned in the general area of empirical labour economics and I have also written recent articles on behavioural economics/finance. I am particularly interested in how optimism influences occupational choice, labour market performance and individual utility.

My research has been featured in media outlets across the globe including Business Standard, Daily Beast, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph Australia, Daily Star, EL Confidential, Financial Express, Glamour, Hindustan Times, Huffington Post, Independent, Mirror, New York Magazine, Sky News, Sun, Telegraph, Times and Sunday Times, Times of India.

Willing to supervise PhD

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students who are interested in these broad research fields.
