My professional career weaves three distinct, sometimes concurrent, strands of work in non-communicable disease prevention, oral health and research management.
Non-communicable diseases: I am affiliated with the Johns Hopkins’ International Injury Research Unit, and work with a diverse set of partners in Asia on topics such as drowning, capacity building, and policy and advocacy around child injury prevention.
Oral health: I have worked as a dental clinical practitioner in Nepal and the Philippines. I have worked in public and private hospitals as a dental surgeon, and managed teams of doctors in developing world contexts. I have treated as many as 4K patients, and designed and implemented a country wide survey on oral health in Nepal.
Research Management: I have led, provided technical advice and/or coordinated an eclectic set of multi-country public health projects for the Water Institute, Bloomberg Philanthropies, World Health Organization, USAID, and Michael Phelps Foundation.
I have published in the Lancet, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, and Injury Prevention, among others.
