The Wingate scholarship allowed me to complete my DPhil thesis at the University of Sussex. During this period I also presented three working papers based on the thesis at conferences in India and the UK; all three are now published in peer-reviewed journals. After completing my degree I worked with the National Council of Applied Economic Research, New Delhi, for a year. I am currently working as Social Protection Economist in the New Delhi office of the World Bank. My areas of interest are applied development economics with a particular focus on labour market and social welfare issues.
