I am an empirical researcher at the School of Economics and Finance of Massey University. I received my PhD from ANU in 2014 and previously held appointments at the Planning Commission and the Ministry of Finance in Bangladesh and the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy in Australia.
I am interested in studying issues related to public economics, labor economics and development economics, with a particular focus on household consumption. I have published articles in reputed journals such as Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Energy Economics, Agricultural Economics, Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Economic Record. I am currently undertaking work related to the financial stress of Indigenous and agricultural households in Australia. I am a Fellow of The Global Labor Organization (GLO).
