Prof. Anaka Aiyar would present a research seminar on January 7th from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
Anaka is a Post Doctoral Associate at the Tata Cornell Institute (TCI) in Cornell University. She has a
PhD in Economics from University of California, Riverside. Her research interest encompasses
evaluating policies and identifying mechanisms that can improve health of economically
underprivileged people who live in developing countries. In her research, she integrates theories
from health economics to explore the direct and indirect impact of introducing health insurance on
the household decision making process. Anaka's research has been published in journals such as
Economics Letters. At TCI, Anaka's research projects explore mechanisms that explain why states in
India have had disparate experiences in achieving nutrition security over the last few decades. Her
work on this topic will be published as a co-authored book entitled 'Food systems for a rising India' by Palgrave publishers in 2019.
