Ayush Pant is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Ashoka University. He is an applied economic theorist with a primary interest in information economics. He studies issues in organizational and political economics. In many real-world settings, both in politics and organizations, different actors often hold different information about relevant decisions. How these actors interact with each other seeking this information and make decisions in particular contexts is at the core of information economics, and his research. He constructs simple theoretical models to isolate the primary source of asymmetric information and provide a rationale for the observed behavior of actors in such environments.
