Personal profile

I completed my PhD in Economics from the University of Bristol in 2017. Earlier, I did my MSc in Economics & Econometrics from the University of Bristol and BSc (Hons) in Economics from the University of Bath. Since then, I have been teaching at the University of Bristol. 
 
I have previously also worked at the Queen Mary University of London as a Visiting Lecturer; at the Bank of England as a PhD Intern; at the Planning Commission of Pakistan as an Economic Consultant; and, at the Cambridge Econometrics Ltd. as an Assistant Economist. 

Research

My research interests revolve around understanding firms' pricing decisions in macroeconomic models; production networks; financial frictions; and, monetary policy. I am super-keen in learning and contributing towards the HANK (Heterogeneous Agents New Keynesian models) literature. 

My PhD research focused on understanding how intermediate materials prices and energy price uncertainty affects inflation dynamics in New Keynesian DSGE models.
