For my dissertation, I conducted several field experiments in rural India from January-April 2016. In doing so, I traveled extensively through the remote villages of Assam, the mountains of Meghalaya and the forests and tea gardens of the foothills of Himalaya in North Bengal. Here are some glimpses from my field research.
