My research contributes to improvement of mental health outcomes by drawing on inter-disciplinary knowledge and mixed methods. My work unpacks the notion of a ‘global’ mental health and attempts to inform development of services that account for local experiences and understandings of psychological distress.

I studied International Development at the University of Toronto and Social Work at McGill University, Montreal. My doctoral research at University College London (2010) deployed ethnographic methods to examine how individuals, communities, mental health professionals, and policy makers conceptualize and deliver community mental health services in an identified rural north Indian site.
