With over a decade of experience in the medical field, I'm a physician and R developer with a deep interest in infectious diseases, immunology, ultrasound, and sports medicine. My multicultural background, with family roots in India and Australia, has shaped my global perspective and approach to healthcare.

Currently, I have active projects at the University of Melbourne, WEHI, the University of Bergen, and icddr,b. Previously, I have performed various clinical and research roles in computational medicine (University of Oulu, Finland; 1.5 years), pharmaceuticals and ICU (CRO, India; 0.5 year), translational neurotechnology (NCIL, Canada; 2.5 years), infectious diseases (CMC, India; 0.5 year), rural family medicine and pre-hospital emergency care (not-for-profit, India; 2 years). My passion for education extends beyond the clinical setting, and I have developed and conducted courses in infectious diseases, basic life support, and healthcare rights alongside more experienced colleagues.

My extensive training includes a medical degree from Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, India, followed by diplomas in addiction medicine (University of British Columbia, Canada), family medicine (Royal College of General Practitioners, UK), football medicine (FIFA, Switzerland); an MPhil in international community health (University of Oslo, Norway); and a GradCert in translational neurotechnology I (NeuroCognitive Imaging Lab, Canada).

I hold active medical licenses from the Norwegian and Indian medical authorities and passed the Australian Medical Council's MCQ examination in 2018. My commitment to continuous learning and professional development is evident in my diverse educational background and ongoing engagement in research and education.

I'm always open to engaging in casual discussions or exploring opportunities for collaboration. Feel free to connect with me to learn more about my work and how we might work together to make a difference in the healthcare field.
