University of Alabama
I have a broad experience working with several types of injuries among diverse population groups under the mentorship of experienced researchers along with having an advanced curriculum training in Injury Prevention and Epidemiological research. In my graduate research career, I worked on projects assessing various health and safety-related outcomes, especially those focusing injuries and violence-related injuries. The projects I had been involved with so far on projects include hospital-treated work-related assaults, understanding the phenomenon of solid waste burning in Indian cities from the perspective of waste handlers and residents and the risks involved, epidemiology of geriatric fractures in the United States (U.S.), World Trade Center disaster-related exposures, and their association with new-onset asthma, and qualitative bias assessments, cost estimations and risk predictions for Workers’ Compensation based farm-related injuries in the U.S., analyses of the associations between physical and psychosocial work and health-related exposures and their association with injuries at work. As a postdoctoral scholar, I am involved in several clinical trials, Workers’ Compensation data based analyses of injury-related outcomes, building projects within RedCap and co-teaching a statistics course specific to health care professionals.
