Her key research interest is to evaluate the impact of public policy interventions on household behaviour with a focus on gender and poverty. Within this she is particularly interested in interventions that enhance women’s livelihoods and reproductive health. She has worked extensively on microfinance and menstrual health in India. She is also interested in studying influences of institutional factors on women’s agency, particularly the influence of patriarchy and social networks. She has been combining the use of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis for over ten years and is experienced in the use of a variety of techniques, extending this to the use of focus-group-discussions which have proven meaningful in her recent works. She was PI for a recently completed randomised controlled study that examines the role of informed choice in menstrual health.

Her work is highly engaged with policy and she has been part of several policy teams, her most recent contributions are to NABARD’s E-Shakti programme and in the redrafting of India’s national menstrual hygiene guidelines. The impact of her research has been recognised as ‘world leading’ by UK’s research excellence framework. Her previous research has been funded by UKRI, KRCC, ESRC, British Academy, Newton Trust and DFID. Supriya’s contributions appear in a number of academic journals and she has also co-edited several special issues in high ranking development journals and contributed to significant reference books in this area.
