Biography

After training as a veterinarian in India and specializing in wildlife medicine from the Royal Veterinary College, London, I dabbled in lots of things including molecular biology research, working in government service as a veterinary clinician, a two-year stint as a wildlife vet in a tiger reserve and teaching at my alma mater in Kerala, India.

During my work in the field in India, I developed an interest in infectious disease epidemiology, especially of zoonoses (diseases that are transmitted from animals to humans). I have a particular interest in rabies (and other lyssasvirus infections), an entirely preventable disease that still accounts for over 60,000 human deaths annually, with the majority of these reported from India. In 2021, I completed my PhD on a four-year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme in Epidemiology, Evolution and Control of Infectious Diseases at Imperial College London.

In addition to my research, I enjoy learning new languages and also write bits of fiction and more generally on my blog.
