Being a master’s student at TERI School of Advanced Studies with a specialization in Economics, working in the field of research and data analysis has become my second nature. This interest grew with the numerous research projects undertaken as a primary requirement of the course in the form of Critical Reviews, Policy Briefs, Literature Reviews, and Literature Surveys.
My recruitment with the Network for Certification and Conservation of Forests (NCCF) as part of my summer internship helped me learn the importance of the prequel of any fieldwork, namely desk research. Under their guidance, I aided in the writing of two crucial papers regarding the path that the country is to follow to achieve its Paris Agreement Goals. The job also sharpened my data extraction and cleaning skills, as it was a preliminary requirement for the writing of the papers.
