As an economist and development practitioner, I am particularly interested in understanding change. I believe change, and resistance to change, has to be understood in relation to economic, political and social inequalities and institutional structures.
I have been with the Harvard Kennedy School since 2004 and the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi since 2007. I worked for the World Bank from 1980 to 2004. I am increasingly involved in working with grassroots organizations, especially in India and Latin America, with IMAGO Global Grassroots.
I also love nature, art, and gardening.
