Thanks for stopping by! I'm excited to introduce myself as an assistant professor in the Epidemiology Program at the University of Delaware's College of Health Sciences. Originally from a medical background in India, my journey from clinical practice to public health policy has been driven by observing seasonal epidemics and their socioeconomic impacts.

In my research, I focus on critical areas such as social determinants of health, disparities in chronic disease risk factors and outcomes, substance use (particularly marijuana and e-cigarettes), and aging and disability. My work has been published in prestigious journals like the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Annals of Epidemiology, Stroke, American Journal of Cardiology, Drug and Alcohol Dependence, and Disability and Health. I also serve as an Associate Editor for CDC's Preventing Chronic Disease journal and on the editorial board for BMC Public Health's section on Social Determinants of Health.
