Research Interests: 
My research interest is in the area of Macroeconomics and Macro-Finance. I have covered both empirical as well as theoretical research in my dissertation “Impact of domestic and foreign monetary policy on inflation, interest rate and income inequality”. On the empirical side, I am proficient in Bayesian-based time series analysis and panel data analysis. I work on Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models incorporating financial frictions from a theoretical perspective.
