I am a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. I recently completed my PhD at the Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia, Canada. From March 2021, I will join the University of Manchester, U.K. as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Economics. My research interests are in macroeconomics, labour economics and household finance. I hail from Kolkata, India where I studied for my bachelor’s degree at St. Xavier’s College and master’s degree at the Indian Statistical Institute.
