I hold a PhD degree in Economics from University of Kent and a MSc degree in Applied Economics from University of Nottingham. My interests lie in the field of food, health and development economics. My research uses disaggregated household food expenditure data, product level trade data as well as state/region level data to understand the dietary impacts of government policies.

I am currently working on understanding the trends of processed food and beverage purchases in India, analsysing food demand in Somalia, designing food policies to promote population and plenatary health, and the economic impacts of soft drink industry levy (SDIL) in the UK.

Prior to LSHTM, I worked at the UNESCAP and the Food and Agriculture Organization. My personal webpage can be found here.
