Research Interests: Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics, Financial Economics, Spatial Economics
Rahul Rao is a macroeconomist. His research interests lie in monetary, financial, and spatial economics. His current research work is related to two distinct aspects of resource misallocation in an economy – the sub-optimal allocation of agricultural land across various crops in India, and the misallocation of physical capital due to imperfections in financial markets. He is doing his PhD in Economics from Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Bangalore (expected to defend in July 2023).
