I lead the Decision Lab which works on foundational and applied aspects of judgment and decision making. The work is situated mostly at cross-sections of cognitive & behavioral science and behavioral economics. One of my core research threads is the psychology of gains and losses. Prospective PhD applicants and interns can see topics to apply. We are open to academic and business collaborations.

Relatedly, I am interested in behavioural insights to generate empirical evidence about human behavior and decision making; especially ones that are socially relevant to India and/or inline with United Nations Sustainable Development goals. My passionate focus is on (a) water & hygiene (WASH) and (b) evaluation of students or performers through examination - both of which impact a large number of lives. Happy to work with interns, students and organisations who share the same passion.

Humans and Technology is an initiative to focus research, generate insights and have dialogues on a human view of technology based on behavioural science. Corporate collaborations, queries and partnerships are welcome.
