Averi Chakrabarti

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Global Health and Population at the T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard University. In my research, I use econometric tools to explore topics related to poverty alleviation, human capital accumulation and health in developing countries.

I received my Ph.D. in Public Policy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My dissertation examines the infant mortality costs of deforestation-induced malaria in Indonesia and the impacts of cash transfer programs on different youth outcomes. Before starting my doctoral studies, I was a Research Associate with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) in India.
