Averi Chakrabarti

I am a public policy researcher with training and experience in applied microeconomics. My work focuses on health, poverty alleviation and gender in developing countries. From July 2019, I will be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

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