Saten Kumar’s research interests are in (i) inflation dynamics (price setting behavior of firms),(ii) how agents form their expectations, and(iii) inflation measurement and the welfare costs of inflation.He is currently using primary quantitative surveys to investigate the price setting behaviour of firms and the way they form their expectations. In doing so, he is able to assess whether the price-setting decisions are consistent with the theoretical framework of workhorse New Keynesian models.

He has refereed articles for journals such as Journal of Macroeconomics, Applied Economics, Economic Modelling, Journal of International Money and Finance and Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, among others.
