Personal profile

Academic Background

I have a MPhil in Planning and Development from Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai in India. For my dissertation, I worked on the accumulation pattern among capitalist farmers in the Indian state of Punjab amidst a prolonged agrarian crisis. It was later accepted for publication by the journal Review of Agrarian Studies. Prior to that, I completed my Masters in Economics from University of Hyderabad, India and Bachelors in Economics from Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University. 

My current research interests include Agrarian Political Economy, Poverty and Development, Rural-agrarian capital, labour studies. 

Key Research Interests

My research interest lies in exploring the political economy of agrarian change from a Marxian perspective. Within that, I wish to focus on the agrarian classes of capital whose role and importance in the larger agrarian transition of a developing economy has been considered as bypassed, due to the overwhelming effects of globalisation. I use both primary and secondary data sets for my work. Fieldwork is an important part of my research.
