CV:

I have been teaching in the Global Nutrition and Health program at Metropolitan University College, Denmark, since November 2012. Prior to coming to Denmark, I had worked in Canada, India and the US in various positions and settings, briefly described below.

After completing my Masters' in Social Work from Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai, India in 1991, I worked for 6 years in various positions as Medical Social Worker at K. J. Somaiya Hospital, and as Faculty Assistant and Research Assistant on various research projects at TISS on women’s health, tribal communities, and research relating to production of audio-visual documentaries. I was awarded the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute’s Women and Development Fellowship in 1998 to conduct participatory action research with women with disabilities in Ontario, Canada in affiliation with the Center for Excellence in Community Based Rehabilitation at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. Later, I moved to the US to pursue my PhD (1999-2002) at the University of Pennsylvania. My doctoral dissertation examined access barriers to health care and quality of care for adults with physical disabilities enrolled in Medicaid managed care in Philadelphia, that had undergone economic reforms.

While pursuing my PhD, I taught part-time in the School of Social Welfare (currently School of Social Policy and Practice) at U of Penn, and worked as a Research Assistant on 'Philadelphia Congregations Census' research project. After completing my PhD in 2002, I joined the Department of Social Work, University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa in the US as Assistant Professor where I taught for three years (2002-2005). Thereafter, I moved to Canada and taught at the School of Social Work, York University, Toronto (2005-2006), and the School of Social Work (with a cross-appointment to the Department of International Development), Dalhousie University, Halifax (2006-2009). Being away for several years, it was a good idea to touch base with my roots, so I moved to India in 2009, where I worked at the Center for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policies, SNDT Women's University, Mumbai (2009-2010), and at the Center for Disaster Management, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai.
