– Dr Anant Jani, Research Fellow at Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development and Oxford Martin Fellow. Anant Jani’s research is focused on understanding how we can improve population health through social prescriptions and by addressing social determinants of health. Given the negative impact of severe heat on morbidity and mortality, he sees access to cooling (both passive and active) as a social determinant of health and cooling as a potential healthcare intervention. In this capacity he works with the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Cooling. Prior to his position at the University of Oxford, Anant worked in Europe and the Middle East to help healthcare systems within these countries to focus more on value-based healthcare. Anant has a PhD in immunology from Yale University. Anant was a Map the System Oxford Judge in 2022, and we are delighted to welcome him into the Map the System University of Oxford Educator role this year.
What is Map the System?
Map the System is a global competition of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in partnership with educational institutions across the world. Participants use ‘systems thinking’ as a guiding approach to understanding complex social and environmental challenges and create systems maps as a means to articulate their findings in a way that people can meaningfully understand, share, and learn from – key skillsets for those interested in creating systemic and sustainable social or environmental change.
