I am a development economist, and my work draws on household finance and labor economics — in particular, informal markets for credit and women’s employment in low- and middle-income countries. For now, my research focuses on India.
I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley, and I received a PhD from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Berkeley in August, 2020.
While a graduate student, I partnered on research at the Social Observatory, an inter-disciplinary team of researchers at the World Bank's Development Research Group; and was involved with the Women in Economics at Berkeley (now Economists for Equity at Berkeley).
I have a M.Sc. in Economics at the London School of Economics, and have an undergraduate degree in Economics from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.
