I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India. My research interest is applied microeconomics, particularly in the areas of child poverty, nutrition, and educational outcomes in developing countries. Currently, I am working on longitudinal data to understand how early-age nutrition shapes later-age nutrition and (non)cognitive outcomes. I have an M.A. in Economics from Chaudhary Devi Lal University Sirsa, Haryana. For more details, visit my website:
