I am the South Asia Director of the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC). Before coming to UChicago I was a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Sustainability Science Program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, as well as a Research Scientist at the MIT Energy Initiative. I received my PhD in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University and hold undergraduate and masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (Delhi) and Stanford University respectively. My research, described in more detail here, spans several aspects of energy and environment policy including the design of environmental regulation, reducing air-pollution, climate change, energy efficiency, electricity access, and renewable energy policy. I also spend an inordinate amount of time watching murder mysteries on TV, probably enough to merit inclusion here.
