Hi and welcome to my website!

My name is Prakhar Misra and I am a second-year Ph.D. candidate at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC. My interests are in public policy research with a particular interest in the selection and training of administrative personnel and a regional focus on India.

I’m also on the Board of Advisors for the Commonwealth Drone Partnership, Global Shaper with the World Economic Forum, and on a Working Group thinking about state capacity to govern artificial intelligence in India.

Prior to this, I spent about 5 years as a researcher with Mercatus Centre, IDFC Institute (now Artha Global Advisors), and Open Society Foundation. I have worked on a wide range of topics: economic liberalization, data governance, and fiscal federalism.

I have taught school children in the slums of Mumbai and Delhi, worked with government officials giving policy inputs, coordinated research outputs across a network of think tanks in India, and co-authored and commissioned research work from some of the best policy researchers in India.

You can view my CV here. And if you want to know what I look like: the picture is below.

Please feel free to reach out for anything. Always happy to chat. Details are on the contact page. 🙂
