I am a faculty member at the Ardnt-Corden Department of Economics, Crawford School of Economics and Government, the Australian National University.
My research interests span the following areas of development microeconomics:
Poverty traps, vulnerability and rural welfare dynamics
Risk management mechanisms in poor communities
Rural financial market, microinsurance and microcredit
Field experiments in development economics
Policy impact evaluation
My current works involve the use of risk modeling and original field survey and experiments in tackling development of pro-poor risk management and credit instruments as a means to reduce poverty and vulnerability among poor communities.
