Professor Pande is an economist whose research examines how the design of democratic institutions and government regulation affects policy outcomes and citizen wellbeing, especially in South Asia. Her work emphasizes the use of real-world evidence to test economic models and use the findings to develop effective public policies, often through large-scale field experiments in developing countries. She has worked extensively on the design and impact of accountability and transparency initiatives, financial access initiatives, and the design of environmental regulation in low-income settings. Current research-policy engagements include work with the Gujarat Pollution Control Board on environmental regulation and the Ministry of Rural Development on data tools to enable smart policy design. Pande received a PhD in economics from the London School of Economics, an MA in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University, and a BA in economics from Delhi University. VIEW FULL BIO
