About me

I am a David E. Bell Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Population and Development Studies at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My research goals are to identify health policy priorities for older individuals in low- and middle-income countries and develop and evaluate policies designed to improve adult health and longevity. I have a broad background in the population health sciences with specific training in demography, epidemiology, and health economics. My work is primarily focused on Indonesia and India but I am also involved in work on Malawi and the United States.

I hold a PhD in Demography and an MA in Statistics from the University of Pennsylvania, an MPH in Global Health from Emory University, and a BA from the University of California, Berkeley. I am also a Senior Research Fellow in Health Systems at IFMR LEAD in Chennai, India, a Fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, and a Research Affiliate in Population and Health at the Society for Education, Action and Research in Community Health in Maharashtra, India.
