Dr Sriram Shankar is a Senior Lecturer in economics at the Centre for Social Research and Methods.
Sriram has a strong background in economic theory (both micro and macro), econometrics, mathematics, statistics and computer science. His initial training was in electrical engineering and he worked for a few years as a software engineer.
However, he had developed an insatiable curiosity for economics and economic development and therefore he made a career switch and retrained himself in economics and econometrics.
Sriram’s publication record shows his versatility and ability to undertake research in a range of areas in economics. In addition to his work on production under risk and uncertainty, he is actively pursuing research in a number of topics in labour economics, development economics and applied econometrics.
