Avinash is a Research Fellow in the New Delhi Office of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). My research focuses on understanding how public policies and markets affect the adoption [and non-adoption] of sustainable technologies and practices in agriculture (e.g., solar pumps, soil health cards, soil micro-nutrients, improved seeds) in South Asia. He is also interested in understanding the impact of India's food policies and large food safety-net programs on farmers and consumers.
Avinash received his Ph.D. in Public Policy from Harvard University in 2012.
