Nick Shankar

Welcome to my website! I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. My interests are in development economics.

From 2020-2022, I was a pre-doctoral research fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. In 2020, I graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. in Economics and a minor in Math. 

Outside of Economics, I love coffee (specifically making cold brew), watching movies, and exploring cities (especially the restaurants).
