Sarangi described Berlin as an academically exciting place.


“I love going there and was quite happy to renew my appointment,” Sarangi said. “Since there are many people in Berlin with research interests similar to mine, it is an added bonus.”


During his visits, Sarangi interacts with department associates, works on research papers and provides feedback to Ph.D. students about their research.


“I also attend talks in other departments as well as at other universities and research institutes in Berlin,” Sarangi said. “I also contribute to DIW’s working paper series and give a talk or two while I am at the institute. These visits are quite productive.”
