현재 한양대학교 경상대학 경제학부 및 일반대학원 응용경제학과의 교수로 재직중인 구랑가다스(Gouranga G. Das) 교수는 Jadavpur University를 졸업하고 동대학에서 경제학 석사를, Jawaharlal Nehru University에서 경제학 박사학위를 취득하였고, Monash University에서 경제학 박사학위를 취득하였다. 이후 미국 플로리다 대학에서 연구교수로 활동했다.
다스 교수는 성장과 개발 문제를 탐구하는 개발경제학자다. 그의 중점 연구 과제는 다음과 같다.
1. 성장과 기술 변화
2. 무역, 세계 경제 통합, 그리고 기술 혁신의 전파
3. 인적 자본 형성, 기술(skill) 습득과 과학 기술(technology) 채용
4. 무역 흐름을 규제하는 세계 환경 정책과 법규의 흐름속 무역, 과학기술, 그리고 환경의 결합.
그의 연구는 경제 발전에 관한 경제 정책 문제에 집중되어있다. 특히, 그는 무역의 개별적 측면, 무역의 징후, 그리고 국가간 무역의 차등적 영향(differential impacts)의 내부 요인들을 전문적으로 다룬다. 그의 연구는 기술 보급, 흡수 능력, 융합과 융합 부족의 요인들, 그리고 만회 문제, 숙련-비숙련 노동력, 생태과학기술-생태무역과 식량 안보, 식량 생산성간의 균형과 같은 문제들을 다룬다.
현재 그의 연구는 이전 연구의 맥락에서 여러 종류의 기업들, 기업들의 근원, 그리고 여러 기업들의 생산성 차이에까지 분야를 넓히고 있다
예 : 숙련 –비숙련 노동자의 봉급 차이와 무역 대 기술; 무역과 부패; 부동산 거래와 개발 문제; 포괄적인 성장(선택적 측면)과 지속 가능성의 문제.
국가들내외의 다양한 경제 요인들의 상호작용을 탐구하기위해, 그는 AGE(Applied General Equilibrium) 모형, CGE(Computable General Equilibrium)모형 뿐만 아니라 이론적 모형들도 이용한다. 그는 활발한 연구자이자 the leading Global Trade Model(Global Trade Analysis Project-GTAP), Center for Global Trade Analysis, Purdue University in Illinois USA, 그리고 Center of Policy Studies, Victoria University (previously located at Monash University), Melbourne Australia의 회원이다.
