This autumn, AHPP will welcome development and health economist Margaret Triyana as the 2013–14 Asia Health Policy Postdoctoral Fellow.

Triyana will focus on analyzing the effects of rural-urban migration on children’s health outcomes in China and Indonesia, contributing valuable insight toward Shorenstein APARC’s research initiative on demographic change in Asia.

Currently an Indonesia Research Fellow at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University, Triyana is also completing her doctoral degree from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. She holds a BA and an MA in economics, and a BS in mathematics, all from the University of Chicago.
