Biography

Her Ph.D. dissertation investigated the role of illness perception among Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) patients. As a part of her research work, she developed a 13-item scale for measuring the adherence behavior of CAD patients.

She also analyzed the portrayal of the caste stereotypes in mainstream Bollywood cinema. As a researcher, she was also involved with one of the prestigious projects of the Government of India “Re-introduction of Cheetah in India” at Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun.  Her current research interest includes understanding the role of media in various health-promoting and health risk behaviors.
