I am a PhD student at the Department of Geography and Urban Studies, Temple University. My research interests are in the subfields of medical geography, population geography, and spatial statistics with a special interest in understanding health disparities among minorities. I approach that with an environmental justice lens in understanding the socio-economic factors and neighborhood-level stressors towards the production of such disparities. My dissertation will be focused on defining how ethnic enclaves impact health among the Hispanic population through GIS mapping and statistical analysis. 

Originally from India, I have a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy in Geography from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. My M.Phil. dissertation had a focus on urban development and access to basic amenities in the city of Kolkata.

I’ve been a former intern at the Durham Transportation Department as a Transportation planning support and served to organize their equitable community engagement.
