About me

I am a researcher interested in a range of issues related to the economics of the environment, including climate change impacts, natural resource management, and the economics of energy. Before moving to the SLU Umeå in January 2017, I was at the Beijer Institute in August 2014 and prior to that, was a Brouwaldh Fellow at the Center for Environmental and Resource Economics and the Department of Economics at Umeå University in Umeå, Northern Sweden. I came to the U.S. from India to do a PhD in Sustainable Development at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and moved to Sweden soon after its completion. 

I have taught a wide range of courses at the graduate level, including Microeconomics, Econometrics, Environmental Economics, and occasional courses in R.  A full listing of my papers (and teaching activities) are in my CV . You may also view my official Beijer and CERE webapges or my google scholar profile.
