I am a rising fifth year Ph.D. candidate in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. My dissertation studies women's intrahousehold bargaining power in low-and-middle income countries. I am advised by Professors Christopher Barrett (chair), Francine Blau, Brian Dillon and Carolina Castilla.
Before moving to the United States for my PhD in 2018, I worked with the International Food Policy Research Institute in Delhi as a Research Analyst. I completed my Master's in Development Studies at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai in 2016 and received a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Delhi (Lady Shri Ram College for Women) in 2014.
When not working on or thinking about my Ph.D. dissertation, I like to spend my time dancing, hiking and fawning over animals.
