I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of New Mexico. I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in the field of Development Economics and Labor Economics. Broadly, my research lies at the intersection of adolescent human capital and labor outcomes and the gender-differentiated impacts of events in developing countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. My research demonstrates how events during the critical growth period of adolescence can improve or hamper human capital accumulation. I pursued Bachelor of Commerce and M.Sc. (Economics) from India in 2014 and 2016, respectively. I received M.A. (Economics) degree from UNM in 2019.
