He is also a Junior Fellow at the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Prateek earned his doctorate from University College London (UCL) in 2018. Prateek studies how free and inclusive markets evolve(d) in history, and in developing countries.

They need a set of supporting conditions and institutions to function, in the absence of which traditional relationship and identity based institutions persist, limiting opportunities especially for the historically marginalized. His research has been featured in journals and the popular press, including Stanford Social Innovation Review, Bloomberg, and VoxEU. Prateek has been a recipient of several prestigious grants including the ESRC-UKRI-ICSSR grant on studying the future UK-India trade and the role of networks in facilitating them, and a grant from the Government of Uttar Pradesh, India for studying the spontaneous organization of Kumbh Mela in 2019.
