I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Community Development and Applied Economics (CDAE) in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at the University of Vermont (UVM). Prior to UVM, I worked as an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Nevada, Reno.

My research program adopts a transdisciplinary perspective in evaluating health interventions and offers actionable recommendations to enhance the efficacy of health interventions. Specifically, I explore questions related to access, affordability, availability, of community resources and the impacts of policies on these resources. I am also interested in understanding how inequality within communities impacts health and food security outcomes. My research context covers the global south with a special focus on India. I believe that solving complex development issues requires weaving insights across disciplines to both understand these problems as well as address them cogently.
