I am an Assistant Professor of Health & Medical Psychology in the Department of Liberal Arts at the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad.

My main research focus is on:

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

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

(iii) Health behaviours: diet, exercise, safe sex.

I am currently recruiting exclusively within the area of work health psychology.
