I am an Assistant Professor (of Health & Medical Psychology) in the Dept. of Liberal Arts and an Adjunct Professor in the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad.

My main research focus is on:

i) Psycho-oncology: pathways to care, labeling, communication, coping, quality of life, illness representations, and end-of-life issues and decision-making.

ii) Adherence: factors associated with adherence to healthy behaviours/doctor's recommendations, especially among chronically ill populations.

I am also interested in exploring sexual health practices in urban young adults.
