My main areas of research focus on applying impact evaluation techniques to provide policy insights in health, agriculture, environment and development.
Primary fields of interest: Applied Microeconomics, Agricultural Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics, Health Economics, Development Economics.
Secondary fields of interest: Economics of Innovation/Intellectual Property Rights.
My current research focuses on evaluating the implications of economic incentives and regulations of market failure (externality and asymmetric information) in agro-environment (e.g., antimicrobial resistance) and agricultural commodity markets. I also work on designing incentives for addressing issues of market failure in commons (e.g., antimicrobial resistance and climate change). I am affiliated with CeBIL, where my role primarily focuses on evaluating impacts of economic incentives and policies for intellectual property rights in biomedical innovation.
