His research interests are at the intersection of development and labour economics and examine on the one hand, how large industrial policies affect firm behaviour and on the other, how frictions in the labour market constrain job search, recruitment, and hiring practices by workers and firms. He also studies how policy reforms and new technologies can help mitigate these frictions.
A secondary research agenda focuses on examining the evolution of traditional institutions in India over time and across policy reforms.
