I am primarily interested in global health and have predominantly studied around health and wellbeing of migrants and their left-behinds, young people’s sexual health and romantic relationships, diabetes, health promotion and health of ethnic minority populations. I also have an interest in Research Ethics and Research Capacity Strengthening in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in the South Asia.
I studied MSc (Health Services and Public Health Research) and PhD (Public Health) at the University of Aberdeen, UK. I have also completed Master’s degree in Demography from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. Before joining to the Bournemouth University, I had worked for Family Health International 360 (FHI360) as a Senior Surveillance and Research Specialist.
I am one of the co-investigators of Connect India project (http://www.connectindia.co.uk/people/). Connect India is one of Bournemouth University's three Global Hubs of Practice. I am also a Visiting Fellow at Tribhuvan University, Chitwan Medical College (CMC), Nepal; Visiting Research Fellow (International Health) at Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences, Maharashtra, India and a member of Global Consortium for Public Health Research, hosted by Liverpool John Moores University, UK.
I would be happy to supervise post graduate students within my area of expertise.
