Interested in how disciplines as diverse as Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology and Neuroscience are informing the discourse in Economics and Finance; slowly tearing down the myth of the ‘homo economicus’. My dissertation concentrates on how certain violations of the rational expectations model may stem from a person’s fairness evaluations of her own past economic decisions. Prior to joining the PhD program at LUMS I did MBA (Finance) from Institute of Business Administration, Punjab University.
