I am currently working with the Andhra Pradesh Children and Parents Study (APCAPS) cohort, primarily on a MRC-funded study of multimorbidity.

 

I completed my ESRC-funded Demography PhD in the Department of Population Health  of LSHTM in 2020. I used mixed-methods and primary and secondary data to assess the potential impact of family structure change for social support to, and health of, older Indians. Prior to my PhD I completed the Demography and Health MSc at LSHTM, and the BSc in Biomedical Science at King's College London.

Research

My research has primarily focused on the health and wellbeing of older individuals in India, in particular the bidirectional relationship between family structures, support, and health. I am a mixed-methods researcher, with interest in the use of secondary and routine data.

I am a member of the Evolutionary Demography Group and LSHTM's India Interest Group.
