About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics at Michigan State University.  My areas of research interest include regional economics, rural innovation and development, entrepreneurship, and economic geography. My dissertation research involves understanding the link between innovation and economic growth, examining the rural-urban gap in innovation and growth, and explaining the gap in terms of micro and macro level variables.

I have a working experience on cross-sectional and panel data analyses involving econometric models for count data and simultaneous equations. I aspire to learn the application of the spatio-temporal econometric models to understand the dynamic nature of differences in inter-regional innovation and growth.
