I completed my PhD in Epidemiology at the University of California, Berkeley, and my thesis was about the epidemiologic features of vaginal infections among reproductive-age women in South India. Prior to my PhD, I worked on studies in India and Zambia.

I completed my MSc in Control of Infectious Disease at LSHTM, where I discovered the wonders of the guinea worm.

Research

Currently I am working on a project to measure the impact of Peer Advocates (trained by Groundswell, an NGO) on their clients, people who are homeless in London.

 

From 2012 to 2019 I was working in the Programme to Improve Mental Health Care (PRIME) research programme consortium.

The consortium aimed to integrate services for depression, alcohol use disorder and psychosis into the primary health care sector in five low-income country districts (Ethiopia, India, Nepal, South Africa and Uganda).
