I am a UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellow at the Medical Research Council Integrative Epidemiology Unit.
I am a genetic epidemiologist with a research focus on cancer. I studied medicine at the Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College and trained at the Sassoon General Hospitals in Pune, India. I hold an MPH degree in epidemiology from the University of Texas at Houston in the US, where I pursued graduate research training in genomics at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. I completed a PhD in Public Health and Primary Care from the University of Cambridge, as a Gates Cambridge Scholar and as the first Homerton College Junior Research Fellow in Clinical Medicine. I was subsequently awarded the Future Leaders Fellowship by UK Research and Innovation, enabling me to establish a research group at the University of Bristol.
