Environmental Economics, Behavioral Economics, International Trade and the Environment


I am an applied microeconomist with broad interests. I was born close to Kolkata---a melting pot of colors and cultures (sometimes it literally felt like a melting pot because of the heat)---India, and I spent the first 25 years of my life there, before ending up first in the lush rain-swept greenery of the pacific northwest (Eugene, OR) for my Master's, and then in the spectacular, and bitterly cold, high plains of the Midwest (Laramie, WY) for my PhD. In my spare time, I like to fish, play and/or listen to music, go on hikes, check out breweries, and read. I've been known to try all of these activities at once. The consequences, thankfully, still remain unknown. Please see for a detailed bio.
