Assistant Professor

Our Research Group at the Department of Economics University of Kashmir is currently exploring micro and macro level economic effects/impact of low intensity armed conflict. Various dimensions of fragility and its interplay with development outcomes are studied. Based on largescale unit level data we are trying to sift, document and model Individual and firm based behaviours in fragile ecosystems. Further an attempt is underway to conduct baseline surveys in the state of Jammu and Kashmir for better understanding of the results generated from secondary data sources.  Labor market Studies as well as Instituional dimensions of development are of interest to us. Interns in any of these areas are welcome to connect.
