Aaditya Dar Economist


I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Indian School of Business (on leave for the 2022-23 academic year) and Lecturer at the Department of Economics, University of Maryland, College Park. I am also the Associate Director of the Master of Science in Applied Economics program at UMD, a research fellow in the Bharti Institute of Public Policy at ISB, member of Society for Economics Research in India and co-organizer of the Seminar in Applied Microeconomics.

My research examines the social, political and historical factors that cause and accentuate poverty, and how individuals and communities can break away from these structural constraints. One strand of my work focuses on state capacity, governance and conflict, while another engages with issues in agriculture like technology adoption and structural transformation. My CV is here.
