Personal profile


I am an Environmental Economist keenly interested in improving the conservation of our planet’s natural resources.

I completed a Masters in Applied Mathematics from the University of Hyderabad, India, after which I moved to the Unites States to pursue a Masters by research in Environmental Science from Rutgers University, New Jersey. I then moved to Australia and completed my PhD in Environmental Economics from the University of Western Australia. I have been working as a Research Associate in Environmental Economics at the UWA School of Agriculture and Environment since February 2020. I am part of the Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy (CEEP).

My research focuses on using economic valuation and cost-benefit analysis to better guide environmental and conservation policy decision-making. My expertise is in non-market valuation techniques (specifically, discrete choice experiments), cost-benefit analysis, and in survey design and analysis. I am particularly interested in integrating people’s preferences for conservation outcomes and the non-market values of environmental goods and services into decision-making.

My research till date has looked at prioritising threatened species’ conservation projects, valuation of environmental volunteering activities, community values for coastal hazards and their management, and farmers’ interest in adopting on-farm climate change mitigation practices.
