I am an addictions psychiatrist conducting research aimed at developing and evaluating interventions for alcohol use disorders in low resource settings. Having completed my medical degree and a specialized degree in psychiatry in Goa (India); I further pursued my post graduate training in General Adult and Addictions Psychiatry under the South London and Maudsley training scheme in UK, and later completed my Masters in Mental Health Services Research from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London and PhD from LSHTM. 

My research interests encompass global mental health, and particularly alcohol use disorders. A lot of my work is based out of Sangath, a research NGO in Goa, India where I started and lead the  Addictions Research Group.

 Finally, I have also been actively involved in the capacity building of mental health researchers and lay health workers. I teach on the Leadership in Mental Health course, which I coordinate in Sangath. I teach on the same course hosted in Egypt by the World Health Organisation-Eastern Mediterranean Region Office; and for the Pacific Island Nations in Australia. Over the past few years, I have trained and supervised lay health workers in community-based mental health care in Goa, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan in India, and in Chitwan and Kathmandu in Nepal.
