Thank you for visiting my website!

I am a demographer. I am a David E. Bell Fellow at Harvard University. I have a PhD in Demography and Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. I am also affiliated with the research institute for compassionate economics, as a research fellow.

My research focuses on social and environmental determinants of health, and empirical measurement of mortality. You can access it here.

My work has received support from the the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Fellowship of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship (at Oxford University) of the European Commission. I am a joint recipient, with Sangita Vyas and Payal Hathi, of the 2021 Dorothy Thomas Award awarded by the Population Association of America.

Below is a photo from rural Mymensingh, Bangladesh. A teddy bear dries in the sun, after a shower, suspended with a string tied to its ear. Without it, this page was too bland.
