I am a doctor-in-training, writer, and anthropologist. I am interested in addressing health care disparities, especially as they affect women who suffer from violence-related trauma in South Asia and elsewhere. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in anthropology as well as an MD at Stanford University. I believe that narratives can deepen our understanding of medicine and transform clinical encounters.
I am eager for opportunities to collaborate, reflect, write, or present.
