HIV prevention and sexual health in vulnerable communities in South Asia, with a particular focus on sex work
Popular understandings of health, illness and therapy
Non-biomedical therapeutic traditions in India within and outside the formal health sector
Lay understandings of suicide and suicide prevention in social and kinship networks
The role of ethnographic and other forms of qualitative research evidence in the formulation and evaluation of public health interventions

I am a social anthropologist who has lived and done research in India as well as the U.K. I am interested in social and cultural aspects of health, health care and healing. I have done research into how ordinary people think about health, illness and medicine and on their choices of therapy (of all types, not just biomedical).
