Ganesh graduated as a Phi Beta Kappa member from Colorado College in 2016 with a dual bachelor’s degree in economics and mathematics. In his past research, he developed an axiomatic framework-based metric for measuring heterogeneity in bounded variables. In addition, he studied income elasticities of intra-household health gaps using game theoretic models and control function-based econometric techniques.

His work at the Center includes evaluation of long-term economic and health impacts of early childhood education programs. Among his other research interests are public economics and econometric theory.

In his free time, Ganesh enjoys hiking, writing poetry, especially haiku, and following politics.
