Stephanie Mastorakos has been working with Professor Margaret Triyana on a variety of projects in the area of health economics, covering topics regarding the effects of health interventions and human capital investments in developing countries. Mastorakos is currently assisting Professor Triyana on her projects regarding the analysis of the socioeconomic determinants of smoking over the life course in Indonesia and the effects of a low-cost playful learning program on children’s outcomes in Tanzania and Uganda.
Mastorakos spent the summer of her freshman year in Vientiane, Laos, as an intern for The Population and Education Development Association (PEDA), a grassroots organization that implements malaria prevention educational campaigns in rural villages in the southern provinces of Laos. Mastorakos analyzed and compiled quantitative data for the monitoring and evaluation of PEDA’s malaria prevention projects as well as drafted grant proposals for PEDA’s future projects.
