Thank you for visiting my website!

I am a demographer. I am a David E. Bell Fellow at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies. I have a PhD in Demography and Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania.

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 was awarded the Dorothy Thomas Award by the Population Association of America in 2021.

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

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.
