About Me


Hello! 😊👋 I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the National University of Singapore Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. As a mixed-methods public health socio-behavioral researcher, my expertise primarily lies in  1) family-led and community-led approaches to equitable health promotion, 2) cardiovascular disease risk factors and behaviors (particularly diet), and 3) the health of Asian, immigrant, and racial/ethnic minority populations. Click on the icons below to learn more about my work, and email me if you'd like to connect!

Across my publications, I have conducted work in the US, China, Australia, and Pakistan on topics ranging from health equity, diet and eating behaviors, the food environment and food security, developing novel qualitative and quantitative methods, COVID-19, injuries and violence, and mental health.

As an academic, I have a strong skillset in quantitative, qualitative, and geo-spatial analysis methods, and have taught multiple undergraduate and graduate level public health courses.  Additionally, I have developed or participated in range of  videos, visual graphics, podcasts, and web-articles to better connect with the communities i work with.

As tri-national citizen of Australia, the US, and Pakistan and fluent speaker of English, Mandarin Chinese, and Urdu, I am particularly passionate about developing community-sensitive and community-engaged approaches to health research.
