Veeshan is a third year Ph.D. student in economics at the University of New Mexico. His current work focuses on interlinking social capital and food security in a developing country setting. Last year, he worked with/under Dr. David van der Goes as a research assistant in the New Mexico Health System Innovation (HSI) project. Moving forward, he hopes to conduct research in pressing environmental and health issues in vulnerable communities and regions. He is almost always looking forward to any prospects of interdisciplinary collaborative work involving such issues.
