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 epidemiologic 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 coordinating the quantitative evaluation for a study about the use of hospital care by people who are homeless in London, and whether it is affected by having a Peer Advocate.

Previously I was an evaluation partner for the implementation of mental health care into primary care in 5 low- and middle-income country districts (Ethiopia, India, Nepal, South Africa and Uganda).
