ArthiI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Irvine.
I am an applied microeconomist working at the intersection of economic history, development, labor, and health. My work falls into two main threads: one looking at early-life health and human capital formation, public health, and migration, largely using historical natural experiments; and the other focused on labor measurement, intra-household allocation, and structural transformation in modern developing countries. For further details, please see the Research page.
