Anisha Nazareth is an Associate Scientist with the Equitable Transitions program at SEI US, where she studies the inequitable impacts of sustainability transitions, with a focus on developing economies. Her research interests lie at the intersection of development theory, sustainability, and information technology. She loves working on projects that use a combination of qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques to model problems and explore solutions.
Anisha is an M.S. student at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in the Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning. Prior to coming to Tufts, Anisha earned an Integrated Masters in Information Technology from The International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Bangalore. For her previous Master’s thesis, she used ethnographic methods to collect data on how an e-waste campaign in Bangalore evolved, and analysed this data (using a combination of Actor-Network Theory and sociomateriality) to see how the nature of e-waste affected the success or failure of the campaign. Anisha also worked for two years as a business intelligence and analytical consultant and has considerable experience in software development, quantitative analysis and working with large datasets.
