I am fond of travelling and have visited several interesting parts of the world. From my travelling, I have become very inquisitive about the role of culture and how it interplays with mental illness. I am quite intrigued by the diverse manifestations of mental disorders in different population groups and the role of family and society in helping patients cope with psychological distress.
In addition to my clinical interests, I have quite a keen interest in sports and play tennis regularly.
