Prior to joining the PhD program, Anusha Chatterjee worked in the Corporate Social Responsibility Headquarters of the largest public sector organization in India. Anusha was involved in managing programs across India – she was responsible for screening grant applications, developing new programs, and managing and evaluating ongoing programs across the country. Her fascination with the grantmaking process has translated into her passion for researching strategic philanthropy, grantmaking, and decision-making processes in the international arena.
Since joining the PhD program, Anusha has been involved in various international social work or international development oriented programs both professionally and in her role as a graduate research assistant. Anusha is also interested in social policy analysis and recently led a funded research project that involved a systematic literature review of policies and regulations concerning foster parents and a national survey of child welfare workers. Anusha is committed to identifying ways in which research can be applied to the field, in enriching social programs and practice. In her spare time, Anusha loves reading, traveling, and photography.
