About Me 

I am a Research Associate in the research division of “Market Unit” at PIDE. I obtained the Ph.D. in Econometrics and the M.Phil. in Econometrics from the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE), and I was a visiting research fellow at Cardiff University, UK (2019-2020). I have previously been affiliated with COMSATS University and National Defence University (NDU), Islamabad as a Visiting Lecturer in Economics. My research is in econometric theory and is principally concerned with panel data and time series causal models. My recent articles have been more focused on macroeconomic issues, exploring the causal link between households and government spending on education across different countries.
