Research Summary and Interests

My major area of interest is analyzing data coming from the field of health. However, the broader domain in which I have worked and have special interest is Maternal and Child Health including women empowerment. One of the major projects where I was involved was a Randomized Clinical Trial for studying the effectiveness of IV iron sucrose among anemic pregnant women in reducing the clinical maternal outcome. Besides this, I have recently developed interest in the area of elderly health and currently developing research proposals in the same.
