My primary areas of research are Development, Microeconometrics and Public Economics. My research focuses on understanding the role of imperfect credit markets and externalities in shaping household demand for basic healthcare technologies in the developing world.

My job market paper analyses the extent of under-adoption of sanitation and the effectiveness of different policies to increase sanitation coverage in India. I employ strategic interaction and structural dynamic models to evaluate optimal design of policy interventions in an equilibrium setting. In other related research, I study the identification and estimation of strategic interaction models with multiple equilibria.
