I left my industry job post my Engineering and I pursued my Ph.D. in Public Policy and Management with a desire to bring positive changes to the World, essentially to see a poverty/ hunger-free World in years ahead. I got exciting consulting opportunity with the World Bank, United Nations Development Programme and the Government of India, immediately after my Ph.D. I joined back academia to pursue my research interest, particularly in the area of education and labor market.

I am working to use machine learning, AI and deep learning to solve information asymmetry problems in the domain of education/ labor market and other prominent problems faced by the policy makers in day to day basis. I am also continuing my research with Government Dataset (mainly Nantional Sample Survey) in the area of vocational/ technical education and skill development in India.
