I have a BA in economics from Colby College and an MA from the Social Sciences Division at the University of Chicago. I was born and raised in India. Previously I worked on the development and evaluation of behavioral finance interventions at Innovations for Poverty Action, a leading research organization in economics, and on energy solutions for the poor at the Sustainable Engineering Lab at Columbia University.
