My main area of research is development economics with a focus on micro-level institutions. Some of my work focuses on the role of gender. Recent projects include studies of rural governments and credit cooperative in India and missing women in developing countries. I am currently collecting data in rural Maharashtra, India with the aim to understand some implications of the new UID government initiative.
