After completing my Bachelor's in Economics from Kamala Nehru College, I have recently graduated from TERI School of Advanced Studies, New Delhi with a Masters degree in Economics with specialization in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics. In partial fulfilment of the course, I wrote a dissertation after conducting year-long research (primary and secondary) regarding the Pavagada Solar Park in Karnataka. My interest in data-driven research and issues related to development further motivated me to find work in a similar domain. I am currently working as the Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator at Development Solutions, which is a research and consulting organization in Delhi. I am also working on extending my research related to the Pavagada solar park in the near future. I hope to continue working with an everlasting zeal to contribute my bit in the development sector through my research.
