Mr Tamoghna Bose graduated in 2019 from Cardiff University. He worked as a MRes Economics candidate under the prestigious funding of the Cardiff Business School, in which Cardiff University awarded to only four students in the Business School.

He started his research in microeconomic theory as a funded doctoral research candidate at University of Birmingham, UK, where he works on Spatial Pricing in the context of Ride-Sharing Platforms. It is here where he works on applied game theory and networking problems like decision making between ride-sharing and hailing cabs, price-setting and matchmaking of the platforms and how consumer surplus for riders, driver’s earnings and profits of platform goes up.

Mr Bose taught various tutorials in Cardiff University to both undergraduates and post-graduates as a part-time graduate teaching assistant.
