I have done both my Bachelors and Masters in Economics from Calcutta University (one of the oldest and renowned University), in India. My involvement in social action began with building community awareness around climate change and waste management during a stint as an International Climate Champion of British Council. I have subsequently been actively involved in various community initiatives in India, all of which have helped me to develop a better understanding of the needs and drivers of social systems. These needs are my biggest motivation to do some quality research which can help to develop a better community to live in.

I had a very versatile work experience background. I have worked as a Research associate in Global Change Program, Jadavpur University, India and did my internship from WWF, India in 2012. Also, I used to work as a teacher of Economics in Krishnachandrapur High School, Kolkata, India. Prior to pursue my PhD at CEU I used to work in a renowned market research agency as a project Manager.

As a student of economics and as an International climate champion, I have been working in many projects on climate change like “Qatar transport solution”, “Ganga River waste Management system” etc. with various top ranking organizations which helped me to develop my critical thinking ability.

As a Ph.D. Candidate at the Environmental Sciences and Policy Department of the Central European University, I would like to study on the quantification methods of multiple benefits due to implementation of an improved energy efficiency measure in building, transport and industry sector.
