Profile

My principal research interests lie in the field of international economics and finance. I am currently investigating the effect of trade integration on South Asian countries for my PhD. This concentrates on both static and dynamic effects of South Asian Free Trade Area. My future research plans are to build on the foundations of my PhD to further develop models and tools in conjunction with the field of finance.
