Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Indian Institute of Information Technology, Guwahati. My current research focus is on International Trade and Economic Development.

Research Interests:

I am interested in working on issues related to trade and its impact on the socio-economic conditions of trading nations. I have worked on the applications of Comparative Advantage Theory of International Trade. I have also worked on the effectiveness of South Asian Free Trade Area for the underdeveloped countries of the region. Currently I am working on a impact of Chinese import surge on the wage inequality between skilled and unskilled labor in India.


I have taught courses on Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Indian Economy. I am about to offer a course on International Trade and Finance in the up coming semester.
