I am a microeconomist with a Phd from University of Cambridge. For the last decade I have been based in India, mainly in Delhi, but from June 2017 in Ahmedabad which is also known as the Manchester of the East. I am a Professor in the Economics Area at the Indian Intitute of Management Ahmedabad. Apart from regular academic duties, I am involved in the shaping the identity of the new Public Policy School at IIMA. During the India years, I have also been a Professor and Vice Dean at Jindal School of Government and Public Policy, a Visiting Faculty at Indian Statistical Institute, a Research Fellow at IFPR and an Adjunct Professor at Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke. Since 2012 I have been the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of South Asian Development. I am also on the Eitorial Bord of Journal of Development Studies. Before moving to Delhi, I spent six years as a tenured member of Faculty and co-Director of the MA in Development Economics at School of Development Studies, University of East Anglia. I have previously held research positions at the Agricultural University of Norway and been a Junior Programme Officer in UNDP’s New Delhi office.
