Subhra Bhattacharya received his Ph.D. from Iowa State University in 2011. His research interests in the fields of economics and finance include public economics, development economics, applied game theory, investment theory under uncertainty and mathematical finance. His current research focuses on the interrelationship between economic backwardness and fragile institutions (and, resulting insecure property) in a strategic environment. His primary research area in mathematical finance is credit risk modeling. Recently, he has also been working on the applications of option pricing theory in energy and other subfields of economics. As a guest faculty, he has taught a graduate level public economics course at TERI University, New Delhi, India. Apart from academics, his interests lie in art, music and literature.
