Welcome to my personal website
I am an Associate Professor at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. I was earlier a Senior Economist with the World Bank’s Global Macroeconomics Team in Washington, DC. My research interests include international finance, international macroeconomics, global capital flows, sovereign and sub-sovereign credit ratings, corporate financing patterns in emerging economies, poverty, inequality and economic growth, and international migration and remittances. I have contributed to various issues of the World Bank’s flagship reports such as Global Economic Prospects and Global Development Finance. I was a core team member of the Africa regional flagship report Leveraging Migration for Africa: Remittances, Skills, and Investments and co-edited a volume on Remittance Markets in Africa, published as part of the World Bank’s Directions in Development Finance series. I graduated with an M.A from the Delhi School of Economics and a Ph.D in Economics from Columbia University (New York).
This website contains some of my research during my time with IIM Ahmedabad and the World Bank, and some earlier research from my graduate school days.
