I am PhD Candidate in Agricultural and Development Economics at the University of Bonn, Germany and Research Fellow at the Center for Development Research (ZEF).

In my studies I focus on agricultural economics, nutrition economics and their interlinkages regarding food consumption. Utilizing household data and microeconomics, I primarily work with quantitative methods. My research focuses on smallholder farmers in riskprone areas of India and Banlgadesh.

My research is only possible on the basis of an intensive collaboration with the University of Calcutta, Welthungerhilfe NGO, Pravah NGO, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). I am funded by the Federal German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and by the Foundation Fiat Panis.

I hold a M.S. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Arkansas (USA), a M.Sc. in Rural Development from Ghent University (Belgium), and a B.A. in Political Science and Economics from the University of Bremen (Germany).

Prior to joining the Center for Development Research, I have been working with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in Germany, with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Germany and Bangladesh, and I have been an Independent Consultant for agriculture and project management.
