Prof Maiti’s core areas of research are Applied Microeconomics and Applied Econometrics. Major components of his expertise are demand estimation and impact evaluation of government and business policies, using econometric methods. One of his peer reviewed works estimates demand for labor in the United States and its regional heterogeneity. This is the first study to investigate the spatial dimension of this issue. The findings of this study are being used for policymaking purposes in the USA (for example, the findings are being used to study traffic congestion in the city of Los Angeles). Another of his peer reviewed original research papers deals with evaluating the impact of a law change on individual level educational and labor market outcomes. For these projects he worked with high volume data from the United States (for example, one of the projects used 50 years of individual level Census data).

Prof Maiti has carried out consultancy projects for Government of India (Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of Panchayati Raj), Government of Uttarakhand (India), and Council on Energy, Environment and Water (India). His consulting assignments focus on demand estimation, impact evaluation, and econometric analysis of data. His academic research papers have been published in reputed peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Regional Science, International Review of Law and Economics, Journal of Business and Economics Perspectives, and World Cultures eJournal.

Prof Abhradeep Maiti holds a PhD in Economics from Middle Tennessee State University (USA) and a Master’s degree in Economics from University of Oklahoma (USA).
