I obtained my PhD in Environmental Health and Risk Management from the University of Birmingham, funded by the University’s Global Challenges Studentship. Motivated by the current air pollution scenario in India, I made extensive use of multiple data sources to determine long-term changes in air quality and the impacts on human health at multiple scales, from cities, to regions, to the globe.

I completed my Bachelors and Masters in Civil Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India in 2015. Prior to moving to the UK, I worked with McKinsey and Company as a data analyst for 2 years.

I am currently investigating the health effects of exposure to air pollution from oil and gas supply chain activities in Texas.
