About:

Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences. I completed my PhD from IIT Guwahati. The title of my thesis was "Indices of Comparative Advantage: A Study with Focus on Differences between Gross Trade and Value-Added Trade." Prior to my PhD, I completed Masters and M.Phil. in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. I did B.Sc. in Economics from Lady Brabourne College, University of Calcutta.

Research Interests:

My research area can broadly be expressed as International Trade and Economic Development. Particularly, I am interested in applications of different theories of trade, multilateral trade negotiations, regional trade agreements and global production networks. I am equally interested in International Finance, particularly on issues related to Balance of Payment of nations, and the dynamics of exchange rate.
