Dr Ranjana Singh
I am a Population Scientist and Statistician by training with ten years of experience in the area of Public Health. I am a Post Graduate in Statistics from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, and Post Graduate and Doctorate in Population Studies from International Institute for Population Sciences, Mumbai. As a part of Future Faculty Programme of PHFI, I have also completed Master of Public Health with Biostatistics as major from University of Albany, State University of New York, USA. I bring with me the experience of conducting surveys including questionnaire construction, statistical analysis of various datasets and report writing. I have co-authored a few of the research papers in national as well as international journals.
I am actively involved in teaching Biostatistics and Demography at the Institute in almost all in-house and e-learning academic programmes. I am involved in teaching and coordinating short term training workshops in the area of Biostatistics with focus on hands on training on statistical software. Apart from substantial teaching, I am also engaged in few of the research projects, mainly in the area of maternal and child health.

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.
