Assistant Professor
IIMB Young Faculty Research Chair

My research focuses on microeconomic theory, specifically behavioral theory and organizational economics. I focus on incorporating non-Bayesian information processing into strategic settings such as persuasion and expert-client relationships to understand economic institutions better. Some of my recent research focuses on modeling and understanding the role of fiduciary duty in aligning the interests of experts with their clients. 

NOTE: I am NOT HIRING for internships or research projects. Thank you very much for your interest.
