Shivangi Chandel is an Assistant Professor in Jindal School of Government and Public Policy (JSGP) of O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed To Be University) since 2019. She completed her doctorate in Economics from Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research. She received a master’s degree in Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, and a bachelor’s degree with honours in Mathematics from Hindu College, University of Delhi. Prior to joining JSGP, she taught several courses in mathematics, microeconomics, and game theory in undergraduate and post-graduate programmes at the Department of Economics, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, and the Department of Civics and Politics, University of Mumbai.
Her research interests lie in Microeconomic Theory and Mechanism Design with a focus on Auctions. In her doctoral thesis, she examines corruption in the form of quality manipulation in procurement auctions where the auctioneer could accept a lower quality product in exchange for a bribe. She is particularly interested in procurement auction designs that emerge due to secondary policy objectives like promoting growth in domestic industry, sustainable green growth etc. Recently, she has extended her research interests into applications of quantum-like cognition modelling in game theory (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Shivangi-Chandel).
She offers both compulsory and elective courses on Game Theory and Mathematics at the school. She serves as Assistant Dean for JSGP Conferences and Open Lectures and is a member of the Centre of Complexity Economics, Applied Spirituality, and Public Policy (CEASP).
