Before joining Swansea in Sept, 2014, I was a research fellow in University of St Andrews from Jan, 2013.

I obtained PhD in Economics from University of Dundee in 2014 and MSc from University of Nottingham.

My research interests include bank centric monetary transmission mechanism channels; inflation dynamics; applied econometrics (regime witching models, structural breaks in time series and panel estimators); and real estate economics.

I am currently working on a collaborative project with the University of Dhaka evaluating Monetary Policy in Bangladesh.
