I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Colgate University. I completed my Ph.D. Economics from the University of New Mexico. I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in the field of Development Economics, Labor Economics, and Gender. 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 completed Bachelor of Commerce (B. Com) honors and M.Sc. (Economics) from India in 2014 and 2016, respectively. I received M.A. (Economics) degree from UNM in 2019.
Research interests: adolescent human capital, female labor, gender, child health, welfare programs
