Averi Chakrabarti

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Public Policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My training and experience is in applied microeconomics, and I am interested in health, poverty alleviation and gender in developing countries. In my job market paper, I examine the infant mortality costs of deforestation-induced malaria in Indonesia. Other ongoing analyses probe the impacts of cash transfer programs in sub-Saharan Africa on youth outcomes such as exposure to physical violence and school enrollment. Before starting my doctoral studies, I was a Research Associate with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) in India.

I am on the job market and will be available for interviews during the 2019 ASSA annual meeting in Atlanta.
