Hello! I am PhD in Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. I am also a TCI scholar at the Tata Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition. I am interested in Development Economics and, in particular, exploring the linkages between agriculture and development. Before Cornell, I received a Masters degree in Economics from Boston University and a Bachelors degree from Delhiā€™s Lady Shri Ram College for Women.

I am currently working on women’s time use in agriculture and its effects on nutrition as a topic of my dissertation. This involves conducing extensive fieldwork for a period of two years. Apart from this, I enjoy traveling and foodblogging.

Here is my CV professional qualifications and do check out my website for blogs on academic research, politics, policy updates, new restaurants and new places to visit! Do write to me if you want to share your experiences/comments etc.
