I am a qualified Physiotherapist from National Institute of Rehabilitation Training and Research, India and Master of Public Health (Epidemiology) 2010-2012 from Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, India and Diploma certificate in Global Health from Maastricht University, The Netherlands.
