Since India has suffered a lot in poor health of one of the vulnerable groups of women and child over the era hence most of my research works are dedicated to this sub-group of population using NFHS and DLHS data, Child growth curve obtained (using NFHS data), Newborn care (community/hospital-based program). In addition to that, being a statistician, I contributed my efforts in public health and Clinical research (medical/patients record live/real evidence data) also.

I am a demographer as well as a biostatistician. I have explored my research work in field of maternal and child health using NFHS and DLHS data. Professionally, I have been involved with DLHS III and also with some NGOs working in community/program evaluation-based research (ICMR, Population Council, MAMTA, IPE Global, UNFPA, World vision) during initial phase after doctoral research. Had worked with ICMR and AIIMS in last few years. Currently, associated with ART Fertility Clinics for IVF. I always appreciate and looking forward for IASP Accenture.
