My doctoral research investigates water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) systems and practices during post-disaster recovery. I have used case studies from Eastern India to study relationships between households, communities, humanitarian agencies and government institutions and changes in WaSH post disasters. The multi-sited case studies included Assam floods, 2012 and Odisha Cyclone Phailin and floods, 2013. I am interested in recurring disaster impacts, systems thinking and resilience in humanitarian operations. I work as a Teaching Assistant on the Integrated Engineering Programme, with the Engineering Faculty, and worked on Development and Planning Module in the The Bartlett, Development Planning Unit in UCL (2014-15). I have worked with Christian Aid, recently during the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, and also RedR India, UNICEF, and Oxfam India.
My hobbies include travel, photography, reading and films not necessarily in that order.
