Welcome

The Tata-Cornell Agriculture and Nutrition Initiative (TCi) is a long-term research initiative focused on solving problems of poverty, malnutrition, and rural development in India. We are established with a generous gift from the Tata Trust to conduct multidisciplinary research, and to facilitate research grants and fellowships to prominent student and professional researchers here at Cornell, in India, and across the globe. Led by Dr. Prabhu Pingali, TCi student scholars, faculty fellows, and external research fellows work alongside partner institutions in India and globally to address the agriculture-nutrition nexus. Learn more.
