About

I am currently working for my PhD at the IDS, studying intersectoral coordination mechanisms in India for prevention and control of zoonotic diseases. I joined IDS in 2014 after working for six years in Public Health Foundation of India on a range of research, policy advocacy and teaching activities related to infectious diseases and zoonoses including a research prioritization for zoonoses, an assessment of rabies control programme in Tamil Nadu as well as an analysis of disease surveillance policies in India.
