I obtained my Bachelors in Economics (B.Sc.) from the University of Calcutta in Kolkata, India in 2004 before obtaining my Masters in Economics (M.Sc.) from University of Calcutta too in the year 2006. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, USA in 2013.
My research interests mainly include Energy Economics, Resource and Environmental Economics, Macroeconomics, Real Options and Growth Economics. I resort to mostly numerical methods for my research. One of my current research topics include the question of India using more of wind and solar and reducing its coal use in electricity generation in order to meet its ambitious domestic targets and Paris Agreement goals.
I have teaching experience for about 8 years. I have taught Environmental Economics (Undergraduate and Master’s level), Microeconomics (Undergraduate and Master’s level) and Macroeconomics, Vector Calculus and Selected Topics in Mathematics for economics students at the undergraduate level.
I use softwares such as Mathematica, Matlab and Gretl for my research. I have served as co-director of a couple of undergraduate theses. Other academic experience includes being a reviewer for the journals Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics and Economic Modelling. I have also served as member of university academic committees.
