Dr. Chatterji’s research, practice, and teaching are geared towards ensuring that women are safe, violence-free, and economically secure. Over the past ten years, her work has focused on understanding the dimensions and causes of gender-based violence (GBV), identifying and testing interventions that can prevent GBV, developing and validating novel methods to measure GBV, and examining structural and economic inequalities that underlie gender inequality and GBV.

Prior to joining GEH, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on the evaluation of Indashyikirwa, an intimate partner violence prevention program in Rwanda. In addition to her research, Dr. Chatterji has extensive experience implementing GBV programs in the non-profit sector in India, is an experienced teacher and mentor to the next generation of social work practitioners and scholars, and is committed to issues of social justice through her research, teaching, and practice experiences.
