Being a medical doctor with post-graduate qualifications in epidemiology and population health, I have more than two decades of experience working for the health of the people through research, teaching and programs, both in developed and developing country settings. I focus on the applied aspects of knowledge, the implementation of evidence-based interventions in real-life settings, translating the research findings into practice.
My area of research includes infectious diseases with special focus on vector borne diseases and COVID-19, environmental determinants of heath including effects of natural disasters like flooding and bushfires on health, and One Health. I love the interface between human, animal and the ecosystem, and endeavours to find solutions for the health problems utilizing that One Health space. Started as a quantitative researcher, I am gradually moving more towards the social determinants of health and investigating them through mixed methods research and using implementation science.
