Sneha Krishnan


Department of Population Health

Sneha is a post-doctoral researcher working in the nutrition group at LSHTM.


She works on the intersection between disaster and development programmes to make them sustainable, resilient and strengthen inter-sectoral convergence – between nutrition, agriculture, water, sanitation and shelter.

She is currently working on a trial in India strengthening participatory video disseminations for linking agriculture, nutrition and health. Sneha also undertakes projects on adolescent perceptions of women’s empowerment in Jharkhand, and strengthening health systems in Bangladesh for displaced populations.

Before joining LSHTM, Sneha did her PhD in Environmental Engineering from University College London, where she evaluated resilience of water, sanitation and hygiene programmes by government and non-governmental agencies post disasters in South Asia. Sneha has experience of working across South Asia after floods, earthquakes, droughts and cyclones, and also teaches on modules on conflict, health and nutrition at LSHTM.
