Hello, I am Sandeep Paul. I am a doctoral candidate at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, The University of Texas at Austin.
As an interdisciplinary researcher, I am most interested in topics related to climate change policy, disaster governance and urban development. My doctoral work focuses on science-policy engagement for urban climate action. It explores the role of policy communities in agenda setting and policy formation of urban climate policies in India.
Before joining the UT Austin, I was a research associate at Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) New Delhi, India. I hold an M.A in Development Studies from Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai, and a B.A. (Hons.) in Economics from Hans Raj College, Delhi University.
