Jyoti Rao is a Lecturer in Property at the University of Melbourne. Issues related to housing and land economics are of prime interest to her and most of her publications are in related fields.
Jyoti’s doctoral research aims at designing a fairer mechanism for the compulsory acquisition of land. In this research Jyoti re-examines the nature of losses of landowners, through the lens of economic theory of ‘capability’ and identifies valuable ‘functionings’ of land which should be satisfactorily reconstructed or replaced to enable the landowner to resume her original condition (prior to acquisition). Jyoti’s research argues for two-stage improvement in the existing mechanism through procedural developments and comprehensive compensation strategies. As a natural expansion of her doctoral research Jyoti is currently focusing on designing a ‘resilient compensation mechanism’ for those who are struck by natural and man-made disasters. Jyoti is an international researcher and has worked on a wide range of issues spreading across Australia, India, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Previously Jyoti has worked at the RICS School of Built Environment (Noida, India) as Assistant Professor and have also been involved as Assistant Manager (Urban Planning department) with a large-scale urban development project, the GIFT city (Gujarat, India).
