London, 2013

Welcome to my personal website. I am a doctoral candidate in the Law Department at the London School of Economics. My research is on natural resource valuation by courtsthat is, the process of putting a monetary value on lakes, forests or even whole species or ecosystemsand the role that judges play in that process.

I did my undergraduate degree in Law at the National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. I then worked for four years at Clifford Chance LLP, London before doing an LLM at LSE (2014–15). For more information, please see my CV or my official LSE page (or for a more informal take, my LSE Student News interview).

My academic interests include Environmental Law, Law and Economics, Environmental Ethics and Philosophy of Economics. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, hiking, cycling and reading fiction. I am also interested in typography and—more recently—bee-keeping. I am currently President of the LSESU Beekeeping Society.
