PhD Economics (University of California, Irvine), MA Economics (Delhi School of Economics), BA Economics (Jadavpur University)
I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Irvine in 2018. I am a Macroeconomist with interests in Monetary Economics, International Economics, and Macroeconometrics. In my research I primarily examine the effects of macroeconomic uncertainty on business cycles.
My research explores the different channels through which macroeconomic uncertainty impacts real activity. My work contributes - both empirically and theoretically - to this growing field by explicitly addressing the role of macroeconomic uncertainty in explaining business cycles across countries as well as understanding policy implications. In addition to analyzing the impact of uncertainty shocks, I am also interested in behavioral macro-models of learning where the assumption of rational expectations is relaxed.
