Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests primarily lie in the intersection of international environmental cooperation and trade. Specifically, my research focusses on (i) impacts and implications of policies on welfare; (ii) optimal environmental and trade policies for countries bound by an environmental agreement; (iii) impact of policies on emisions leakage within an environmental union and (iv) resulting impacts on environmental quality. I am interested in both theoretical and applied research in the above fields but have a stronger expertise in the former.  

Scholarly biography

I have worked as a consultant in real estate and completed projects related to economic forecasting and financial modelling of real estate developments. As a researcher, I have implemented projects on socio-economic impacts of trade on handicraft workers, need assessment and tax evasion studies. 

Supervisory Interests

I am interested to supervise projects in the area of public economics and international economics, specifically environmental policies/ externalities/ international cooperation on environment and trade issues.
