Associate Professor
I am interested in Welfare Economics, in particular measurement of Poverty and Deprivation on which I wrote my PhD thesis. My principal collaborators being Satya R. Chakravarty, Ravi Kanbur and Zakir Husain. My students Saswati Das and Angan Sengupta worked in areas related to Child work and Health economics respectively.
I am also interested in mathematical models for pricing financial contracts and empirical validation thereof. My students Sudip Chandra and Suranjana Joarder are active in this area. Other collaborators being Mrinal K. Ghosh, Gopal K. Basak and Indranil Sengupta.
Analysis of Social Networks particularly fascinates me and I have been working with students, collaborators (Surajit Borkotokey) and post-docs (Anirban Ghatak, Loyimee Gogoi) in this area for some time now. See our website.
Other research interests include application of statistics in Census evaluation (my student Kiranmoy Chatterjee wrote his thesis in this area) and qualitative surveys (ex post doc Sunil Kumar and student Ankita Dey are working in the area of Latent class analysis and Abhijit Sarkar in the area of market viability of heavy trucks).
I would be happy to mentor students at various levels (PhD, year long projects or internships) in any of the above topics.
