About

i am a medical doctor with an interest and specialisation in public health. for my phd, i studied health care organisation and management at the district level in a district of karnataka in south india. my research interests within public health are mainly in primary health care, district health management, health financing and eHealth. i started my career in an ngo providing health care in a tribal area in southern karnataka called br hills and have also worked in primary health centres in karnataka and arunachal pradesh. presently, my work with this ngo is mainly on operational research. most of my travels are to forests and my work at br hills has been the origin and the consequence of my passion for wildlife, especially birds, stemming from a larger interest in natural history and biology itself. i try to keep this alive by birdwatching, reading and writing about this. i am an editor on wikipedia and strongly believe that it has contributed significantly to narrowing the gap between the expert and the amatuer. information and health suffer from similar inequities, and perhaps information equity will be achieved far earlier than for health, and one day, the only barrier to the sum of all human knowledge will be apathy.
