I am a PhD candidate in Health Economics at LSHTM, funded by the Wellcome Trust Doctoral Studentship in Humanities and Social Sciences. My research uses mixed methods to analyse the labour market choices of community health workers in Ethiopia, to improve their retention in the health workforce. I am interested in Discrete Choice Experiments and experimental games to analyse preferences. 

I have a BSc. Life Sciences from the University of Delhi, MSc. Public Health (Health Economics) from LSHTM, and many years of experience in conducting Social Sciences research in India and Ethiopia. Before I joined the school in 2018, I had worked for the World Bank, J-PAL, and Public Health Foundation of India.
