I study the political economy of finance, with a focus on state-led credit allocation, the geo-economics of finance and the politics of green finance. 

My other other project examines the critiques of finance on social media, and how these critiques emerge and get diffused across different segments of societies. I also study the political foundations of new practices of retail investment through the analysis of trading forums and platforms.
