Research Interests: 

I work on the politics of financial systems, trying to understand how system-design choices are also political choices, and how these choices lead to macro-social outcomes such as growth or crises. I have done both theoretical and empirical work in case studies covering Indian bond markets, the US shadow-banking system, the EU, and the global reserve system.

 My broader research interests include:   
  1.  Sociology and political economy of finance
  2.  Political economy of development
  3.  Indian political economy
  4.  Theories of money
  5.  Classical political economy
  6.  New and old Institutionalism 
  7. History of economic thought
