Dr Indranil Dutta - research
My research lies in the area of quantitative development economics and applied welfare economics. Broadly, I am interested in understanding issues related to well-being, deprivation and distribution. Within this, I am particularly interested in: measurement issues related to indicators of well-being and deprivation and the political economy issues associated with poverty and inequality
