Air pollution

  • I'm a research fellow in air quality at the University of Leeds, UK.
  • My focus is on understanding how policies can improve air quality and reduce the impact on human health in India, China, Indonesia, and South America.
  • I completed a PhD in Ambient air quality and human health in India from the University of Leeds.
