I am a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at Harvard University.

My research focuses on labor markets in developing countries. I am currently studying various aspects of the competitive exam system for government jobs in India: why they are so over-subscribed, why so many applicants are unemployed, and whether the system affects the functioning of the labor market as a whole.

Before I started the Ph.D., I was a research assistant at the Centre for Microfinance (now IFMR Lead) and Evidence for Policy Design.

I am currently on the job market and available for interviews at the 2020 EEA / 2021 ASSA meetings.
