I am doing my masters in an interdisciplinary (economic and sociology) master at the university of hamburg. Since about 5 years, I am engaging myself in the german network of pluralist economics, first in Halle, now in Hamburg. In this time I engaged myself a lot in the local groups and decided now to be more active in exploring economics to bring in the knowledge and experience collected in this time. I think exploring economics is one of the most prominent project of the network and has a lot of potential to growth in regard with the widerness of topics.

Part of my job is to create short video lectures and I'm also familiar with statistical analysis (in R). In the recent past, I have also taught sociology and economics at a secundary school level.
I have always found that the curriculum of economics education has been too narrowly focussed. It struck me how different schools of thought manage to coexist and co-influence each other much more in other social sciences (political science is my first master's degree). Now it appears a movement in economics has gained some traction to achieve something similar and I would love to be a part of it. Because I have some free time, I think a "level C" commitment is certainly doable. My interests include political economy, institutional economics, ecological economics, philosophy of science, methodology,...

Coming from the Economics background from India, I am currently pursuing my MBA from Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Shillong. Right from my undergraduate, the study of Economics has always intrigued me which prompted me to take Economics as my major. This interest in Economics motivated me to write a research paper on the topic 'Effect of Crop Insurance Schemes on farmer suicide rates in India' which was published by the St. Xavier's College, Mumbai. This helped me explore the topic of Development Economics and at the same time helped me realize that there is so much to learn in this unexplored field.
