Mayur Trivedi has two decades of research experience in exploring self, science, system, and society across thematic areas of health financing and insurance, health economics, health and development, assessment of health interventions of government and non-government organisations, and exploration of the health of marginalised communities. 

His recent research included assessments of the maternity benefit scheme (PMMVY) and government-funded health insurance scheme (PMJAY) in India.

He works towards linking research learning to classrooms, aiming to enhance cultural sensitivities among public health students through experiential learning of social, spatial, ecological marginalisation, and intersectionality.
