Madhura Dasgupta

Associate Fellow

Madhura  joined NCAER  after completing her PhD in economics from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Her interests are both in macro and micro work and cover public economics, economic development and growth, applied microeconomics and macroeconomics, and computational economics. She has experience in working with large panel data sets, multivariate linear and logistic regression, IV estimation analysis, time series analysis and forecasting, and computational modelling. Her PhD dissertation on the “Private Provision of Public Infrastructure: Growth and Welfare Implications,” builds on both the theory and empirics of the private provision of public goods.  She uses a model of incomplete contracting between the government and the private sector to analyze how such private investment and the allocation of ownership rights affect the degree of economic efficiency. 

 

At SUNY Buffalo, Madhura taught intermediate macro, econometrics and money and banking as an Adjunct Instructor.  She has also taught similar courses as a Teaching Assistant at SUNY. Earlier, she worked as a Research Assistant on a project at the University of Calcutta on a time-use survey of the residents of the East Kolkata wetlands.  She has also worked in a similar capacity at Jadavpur University on a project on export competitiveness. Madhura has received several fellowships and awards during her university education.
