He also holds professional qualification in cost and management accounting (ICWA) and has cleared the National Eligibility Test conducted by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

He has diverse professional experience that ranges from entrepreneurship to government service. He returned to academics primarily because he was deeply fascinated by the mysterious nature of risk, particularly the risk of rare disasters. In his doctoral thesis he has employed the rare disaster framework, juxtaposed with the concept of spirit of capitalism, to explain several well-known asset pricing puzzles. He has presented his research papers at various national and international conferences in India and abroad. For his doctoral work he won the Marti Subrahmanyam Award at IIM Bangalore. His scholarly articles have been published in reputed journals such as Applied Financial Economics (Taylor & Francis) and Economic & Political Weekly (EPW). His research interests include disasters (in all forms: macroeconomic / financial / natural), asset pricing, cryptocurrencies, financial inclusion, health economics, and urban economics. Currently, he is completing a book on cryptocurrencies which aims to present a comprehensive analysis of the economics of cryptocurrencies. He is very passionate about financial inclusion and is working towards an initiative to promote financial literacy.

He teaches courses in the areas of financial management, corporate finance, banking, econometrics, mathematical economics, and strategic management.
