My specialty is Development Econometrics. My areas of interest are Health Economics (particularly on Aging), Education and Gender. ALthough I am an economist by training, my work often strays on the border of Sociology and Demography. I work in applied topics in these fields, using data from either primary surveys, or large data sets like NSSO, DLHS, DHS, etc.
