Headshot

Welcome to my academic website. I am a PhD Candidate in the Food and Resource Economics Group at the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, University of British Columbia. My research intersects environmental and development economics. I am a member of the Centre for Food, Resource and Environmental Economics (CFREE) and the Wildlife and Conservation Economics Laboratory.

Broadly, I combine insights from economics and environmental science to study relationships between human activity and the environment. My current projects include recovering the economic value of biodiversity loss, estimating the long-term cost of coal power plants on human health, and studying migration-induced labour-capital substitution. My geographic focus is mainly India.

Before my PhD studies, I was an EPoD pre-doctoral fellow at Harvard University, completed an M.A. Economics at UBC, and was a Research Associate at J-PAL South Asia.
