He is a selective commentator on economic issues in emerging markets, and his views have been expressed in opinion pages of major newspapers and blogs such as the Financial Times; the Economist; and Brookings.

Apurva is also a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) Special Report on Extreme Events, and was the team leader for the joint World Bank - UN flagship project on the economics of disasters. He has worked on development topics ranging from infrastructure and climate change to microfinance and agricultural economics. Before joining the World Bank, Apurva worked in private sector consulting; for the Thailand Development Research Institute; and held teaching and research positions at the University of Chicago, Thammasat University (Bangkok), and Yale University.
