Professionally Puneet

I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Amrut Mody School of Management at Ahmedabad University. I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from Georgia State University in 2020. I use experiments to address the problems faced by developing countries. I am specifically interested in working with low-cost behavioral nudges to steer student and teacher motivation and improve education outcomes.

Personally Puneet

I have a passion for gardening, and keep learning nuances about different plants whenever not wearing an Economist’s hat. In my free or busy time, I am always accompanied by my Golden Retriever buddy, Rusty, who is equally passionate about plants. I am also a vegan and a trying- to-be minimalist, and believe that society needs to be more aware of the externalities caused by our actions.

More About Me

I am an economist with research interests in the area of development, public and experimental economics. I use the experimental methods (both field and lab) to study policy questions. My current research studies the causal impact of different behavioral nudges on student learning using field experiments. I am also involved in research studying the nature of petty corruption among notary publics, research studying the causal effect of two different audit mechanisms on tax compliance, and research studying the role of good quality government institutions.

With a focus on development and policy issues, I intend to contribute to push the recent movement towards data driven policy making in developing countries while igniting conversations and debates that inspire more rigorous analysis, and nudge the stakeholders in the right direction.

I hold a Ph.D. degree in Economics (2020) from Georgia State University, an M.A. degree in Economics (2013) from Delhi School of Economics, and a B.A. degree in Economics (2009) from Hansraj College, University of Delhi. In his spare time, Puneet polishes his gardening skills and wishes to be a Bonsai artist someday.
