Aashika Nagarajan


Aashika brings experience in best practices research and strategy and a background in public health and business. Her past research has focused on health care innovation, particularly the use of digital health technologies and innovative care delivery models to address health system challenges in the U.S. and resource-constrained regions globally. At FSG, Aashika largely conducts research and co-creates strategies to guide foundation and corporate clients on increasing the impact of their community health and economic development efforts. She is particularly interested in equitable and inclusive community development approaches to tackle cross-sector drivers of social and economic inequality in the U.S.

Before FSG

Prior to joining FSG, Aashika worked as a strategic research analyst at The Advisory Board Company, a health care best practices research and consulting firm in Washington DC. There, she conducted qualitative and quantitative research on consumer health care preferences, digital health strategy, and care delivery innovation.

As an undergraduate student, Aashika researched the landscape of mobile health innovations in low- and middle-income countries, identifying a range of program models and best practices for program implementation and sustainability. Using the findings from her research, she worked with Global Brigades, an international health and economic development organization, to develop recommendations for a mobile health strategy to address health care needs in under-resourced communities of Honduras.

On working at FSG

“FSG recognizes that achieving sustainable, large-scale social progress requires cross-sector collaboration and collective action to change the factors in the broader system that shape complex social issues. It is inspiring to work at an organization that brings this systems change orientation and an empathetic and equity-focused approach to its work with social sector actors. I am grateful for the chance to learn from a group of passionate, intelligent, and thoughtful individuals who constantly push the boundaries of their thinking on how to create meaningful social impact.”
