I have a multi-disciplinary background and interests in research and practice. Currently, I work as a Trial Manager in India undertaking 4 arm, cluster randomised, controlled trial in Odisha to understand linkages between agriculture and nutrition using low-cost video dissemination and participatory learning and action methodologies. As a member of the Health in Humanitarian Crises Centre, I also undertake work on humanitarian and post-disaster recovery. I recently undertook an evaluation of flood recovery programme in Eastern India for a international relief agency. 

I have extensively worked on managing hazards, risks, disasters, complex emergencies and humanitarian efforts in an interdisciplinary and cross sectoral manner emphasising social, environmental justice and participation.

Teaching

I am involved in several capacities in two face to face MSC modules: Nutrition for Global Health, Nutrition-related Chronic Diseases, Maternal and Child Nutrition and two distance-learning modules: MSc Public Health: Conflict and Health module, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene module.

Research

My research interests include social and cultural behaviour change, participatory intervention approaches, social and environmental justice and pro-poor interventions for making agriculture nutrition-sensitive. I have a PhD in Environmental Engineering from University College London, where I looked at water, sanitation and hygiene resilience in a post-disaster recovery context. I evaluated government and non-governmental recovery operations. I have experience of working across South Asia after floods, earthquakes, droughts and cyclones. I have also undertaken research on conflict, health and nutrition.
