I am primarily interested in global health and have predominantly studied around young people’s sexual health, romantic relationships, diabetes, health promotion, migrants and travellers’ health, HIV, health of ethnic minority populations and research ethics. I also have an interest in Research Capacity Strengthening in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in the South Asia.

In addition to my teaching role around global public health issues, I am also leading a number of studies: a) exploring sex hormone use by male to female transgender population; b) health and lifestyles of Nepalese migrants in India; c) mental health components in pre-departure training to Nepalese migrants.

I studied MSc (Health Services and Public Health Research) and PhD (Public Health) at the University of Aberdeen, UK. I have also completed Master’s degree in Demography from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. Before joining to the Bournemouth University, I had worked for Family Health International 360 (FHI360) as a Senior Surveillance and Research Specialist...
