Research Interests: Development, Experimental and Public Economics.
Puneet Arora is an economist with research interests in the area of development, public and experimental economics. He has conducted several field experiments within the Indian education system to study the causal impact of different behavioral nudges on student learning. His research portfolio also comprises a natural field experiment studying the nature of petty corruption among notary publics in Delhi, and a lab experiment studying the causal effects of two different audit mechanisms on tax compliance. Broadly, his research uses the experimental methods (both field and lab) to study policy questions.
Puneet holds a PhD degree in Economics (2020) from Georgia State University, an MA degree in Economics (2013) from Delhi School of Economics, and a BA degree in Economics (2009) from Hansraj College, University of Delhi.
In his spare time, Puneet polishes his gardening skills and wishes to be a Bonsai artist someday.
