Welcome to my homepage.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economic Sciences at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India. Starting December 2020, I will be on leave from IIT Kanpur to join the College of Business at Zayed University (in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates) as an Associate Professor, where I will be teaching courses in Finance and Economics.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the Department of Economics at the University of California, Irvine (2013) under the guidance of Ivan Jeliazkov (Chair), Dale J. Poirier, David Brownstone and Fabio Milani.
My research interest includes Bayesian Econometrics, Quantile Regression, Markov chain Monte Carlo Techniques, Measurement Error, Simulation based Inference, Latent Variable Models, Computation and Data Analysis, Program and Policy Evaluation and Applied Econometrics.
Some R-packages based my research and the model it implements are listed below.
1. bqror: Bayesian quantile regression for ordinal models.
2. qbld: Bayesian quantile regression for longitudinal data (or panel data) with binary outcomes.
