I graduated with a PhD in Economics at the University of Kentucky (Summer 2011). After a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor appointment at Roanoke College in the Business Administration and Economics department, I have accepted a Assistant Professor position at the University of Tennessee, Martin in the Department of Accounting, Finance, Economics and Political Science.
My research and teaching interests lie in labor economics, microeconomics, industrial organization, the economics of education, and sports economics. My primary field is labor and my dissertation uses option value theory to explain student decision-making in post-secondary schooling.
I am from Nairobi, Kenya. My parents immigrated from India in the 1970s. After competing my high school in Kenya, I attended to University of Texas at Arlington for my Bachelors and Masters in Economics. I am a big enthusiast of travelling, cooking, eating exotic foods and playing and watching a variety of sports.
