I hold a PhD degree in Economics from University of Kent and a MSc degree in Applied Economics from University of Nottingham. My interests lie in the field of food, health and development economics. My PhD thesis examined the drivers behind dietary transition in India, including changes in food preferences, trade liberalisation and school feeding schemes. Prior to my PhD, I worked at the UNESCAP and the Food and Agriculture Organization.

My research uses disaggregated household food expenditure data, product level trade data as well as state/region level data to understand the dietary impacts of government policies. I am currently working on understanding the trends of processed food and beverage purchases in India, and the economic impacts of soft drink industry levy in the UK. My personal webpage can be found here.
