I am a job market PhD candidate at the John E. Walker Department of Economics at Clemson University, USA and a Oskar Morgenstern Fellow at George Mason University. I have a MPhil and a Masters degree in Economics from University of Calcutta, India and a Bachelors degree in Economics from Presidency College, India. My research interests lie at the interesction of computational social science, behavioral economics, political economy, game theory and development economics. I am also particularly interested in the problem of polarization, echo chamber and information disorder that is so pervasive in the contemporary world. Using novel data sets such as text data to answer questions that are not acessible via traditional data sets is something I enjoy a lot. To do this end, I am also very interested in applications of Machine Learning in Economics both for prediction purposed as well as causal inference.
