Kasturi Kandalam I have a BA in Economics (Hons) from Azim Premji University (APU). My minor was Media, Society, and Development. I am fluent in English, Telugu, Hindi, and German. Economics as a subject is intellectually fascinating and challenging. Dynamically combining complex economic theories and ideas and presenting them in an accessible form is what I want to pursue. Exploring Economics matches my interest here. As a part of the Economics course in APU, I chose ‘Political Economy’ ‘Development Economics’, ‘Econometric methods’, ‘Indian Economy’, ‘Economic Philosophy and Reasoning’ and ‘Labour Economics’. These courses have trained me towards comprehending economic problems with logical rigor without losing sight of history, politics, institutions and most importantly, people. This also trained me towards understanding and presenting needful and impactful research. Being interested in issues of inequality, unemployment, jobless growth, the role of the state in development, gender and production relations, this platform will help me achieve this because of its diversity in research presented and the team itself. I wish to become part of the Editorial team with Level B of engagement.
