I am interested in exploring social health issues, human travel activities, and dietary behaviours using both quantitative & qualitative research methods.

My current research focuses on examining the effect of migration on chronic inflammatory diseases in South Asian Canadian communities, as well as understanding their health beliefs, health care needs and access to health care services.
