I am an infectious diseases specialist and internal medicine physician with two different areas of research. First, I conduct implementation science research on strategies to improve delivery of tuberculosis (TB) care in India, which has the world’s largest TB epidemic. I am interested in identifying deficiencies across multiple points in the TB cascade of care—including case detection, linkage to treatment, and retention in care—to facilitate the development of patient-centered interventions. In addition, I collaborate with researchers performing innovative work on improving the quality of TB care in India.
I am also involved in the field of “slum health”. I investigate social determinants of health in urban slums in conjunction with PUKAR, a Mumbai-based research collective. Our field research has illuminated the adverse impacts of legal exclusion on health outcomes in non-notified slums in India. Non-notified slums are generally denied access to the municipal water supply, sanitation infrastructure, electricity, land tenure, and housing rights. We have conducted more than 15 field studies in the slum settlements of Kaula Bandar and Mandala since 2009, on a range of issues including water poverty, mental health, child immunizations, and malnutrition.
