Hello! I'm Vivek Shastry. I am an interdisciplinary policy researcher specializing in energy policy and environmental justice. I'm currently a PhD candidate in Public Policy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin. My doctoral work explores the intersection of energy access, primary health care and rural livelihoods.
I enjoy finding insights from data as much as working with stakeholders to implement solutions on the ground, and aspire to combine research, teaching and implementation to bring about meaningful change in the lives of the underserved.
