Areas of expertise: Development economics, health economics, program evaluation, Southeast Asia


Margaret Triyana’s research interests lie at the intersection of development and health economics. Her main research area focuses on evaluating the effects of health interventions and social assistance programs. Triyana is also interested in the link between environmental factors in early life, human capital investments, and later life outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. She is particularly interested in the policy implications of these research findings.

Triyana applies quantitative empirical methods to preexisting data and conducts field experiments to study human capital investments in developing countries. She has studied the effects of social assistance programs on health care prices and the long term effects of environmental shocks in early life in Indonesia and the Philippines. She also conducts randomized control trials to analyze human capital investments, such as early childhood education and school-based health programs.

Triyana earned her Ph.D from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. She was previously the Asia Health Policy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center at Stanford University and a visiting fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.
