I am a Reserach Fellow in One Health at the Communicable Diseases Policy Research Group, LSHTM. My main research focusses on the transmission of zoonotic pathogens at the human-livestock interface. 

Before joining CDPRG, I completed my PhD in Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health at Royal Veterinary College (RVC), London on the development of evidence based control programmes for bovine brucellosis in Punjab state of India. Prior to this I gained a BSc in Bioveterinary Sciences (RVC) and an MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology (RVC and LSHTM) .

Supervision of MSc One Health and Veterinary Epidemiology students.

Research

Currently working on the “PigFluCam+” project which aims to characterize the nature and extent of zoonotic risks from pig rearing systems, with a focus on influenza. This activity will help us predict zoonotic and pandemic risk in relation to changing livestock production systems in the Lower Mekong Region.
