I am a researcher in the broad area of applied microeconomics with skills in designing and running experiments, analysing laboratory or field data with various appropriate econometric techniques. My research can broadly be segregated into two pathways. In the first pathway, I pursue behavioural and experimental research to understand social preference and conflict behaviour. The second pathway relates to Industrial Economics and Competition Policy in which I am investigating collusion, vertical relations and topics in anti-trust and consumer policies.

Before joining the University of Reading, I was a lecturer in Microeconomics at the University of East Anglia.
