Research Interests

I am interested in issues revolving around International Finance and Macroeconomics, and beyond that also read around trade and development. Beyond my usual and core academic research, I ponder around questions of electoral politics and political economy as well.

Currently I am also spending time getting to know concepts around Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Deep Learning and their applications to research around economics.
