Suman Chakrabarti is a Predoctoral Research Associate at the University of Washington. His research interests include understanding the relationships between sociodemographic, programmatic and dietary changes, and health/nutrition outcomes, across multiple contexts. Suman joined the Ph.D. program in Global Health Metrics and Implementation Science in 2018 after working as a Research Analyst at the International Food Policy Research Institute for seven years. During that time, he was involved in the evaluation of several large-scale randomised controlled trials, observational studies, and costing exercises. His published research investigates the impact of large-scale social protection programmes on poverty, maternal and child health and nutrition. After obtaining his doctorate, he plans to pursue a career in academics and research, where he aims to focus on comprehensively evaluating the determinants of chronic malnutrition/disease in populations and connect scientific evidence to improve policies and programmes. His goal is to contribute to the growing evidence base that informs the nexus between economic variables, nutritional intake and health that can help effectively address poverty, malnutrition, and disease globally.
