I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Economics at UCSB. Prior to this, I completed my M.Phil in Development Studies from the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR) in Mumbai, India. Additionally, I earned my M.A. in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi, India, along with a B.A.in Economics from Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India. My primary research interests are issues pertaining to gender and inequality in the fields of labor and development economics. I have previously worked on a project exploring the impact of increased imports from China on the district-level gender wage gap in India, which was the focus of my M.Phil thesis. At present, I am working on understanding the role of within-kin marriages (or marriage between relatives) in mitigating the impact of rainfall shocks on domestic violence in India.
