Lecturer in Social Policy, University of Bath

I am a demographer and social statistician working on issues affecting low and middle income countries. My main research interests include menstrual hygiene management, son preference, fertility transition, sexual and reproductive health, violence against women, and gender statistics. I have expertise in the demography of both Asia and Africa, with a particular focus on Nepal and South Asia.

Currently, I am a Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Bath. Previously, I have worked at the University of Oxford, the University of Southampton and the United Nations Statistics Division.
