As a PhD Fellow – I aspire for PhD with a clear intention, to improve population health standards in my country and across the globe. My experience while working with a Research Organisation, there has been many instances wherein I have observed malnutrition in kids, lacuna in basic facilities like safe drinking water, menstrual hygiene which I staunchly believe should be controlled.

Future of India and Developing countries holds a lot of potential in Population health Informatics, my plans are to see a better status quo in standards of hygiene, nutrition, education, well-being, gender equality, etc. In developing countries, not only by reaching out to local/Global stakeholders and working closely by using Data enriched analysis to prove that quality of life/ value of human life can be taken care within the Grant’s that are budget for a cause just by efficiently using it.

I strive to be worthy of a title through this doctoral program wherein I can use latest technology around me to control and overcome these lags of our society.
