Research Interests

Dr. Sanjeev's research focuses on new delivery models and neurophysiological mechanisms of behavior change interventions addressing multiple major chronic conditions that are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the INDIA, including Cirrhosis of liver , obesity, coronary heart disease, hypertension, prediabetes, metabolic syndrome, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and depression. 

he is particularly interested in effective prevention and control of these debilitating and costly chronic conditions through comprehensive, mechanism-driven lifestyle interventions that are individual patient-centered and, at the same time, scalable and sustainable for population health management through use of Internet and mobile technologies. he is strongly committed to lifestyle intervention research specifically targeting underserved populations,
