Researcher Biography

I completed my Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery in India at Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University, Pune and pursued a Master of Public Health at the Queensland University of Technology. My interest in social science research grew during my master’s program, motivating me to undertake a PhD with UQ-IITD Academy of Research.
