Current Research Interests

Professor Aksan is a development economist studying demography and health in developing countries with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa. Current work focuses on distinguishing between the roles of disease-caused morbidity and mortality on population growth, human capital accumulation and lifelong health, and the consequences these hold for economic development. Related research interests include health care access in low-income countries, in part as it is affected by intellectual property rights. Recent research also looks at local food access issues in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
