Manan has had the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from the fields of Nutrition, Public Health, Public Policy, Geography, and Epidemiology. With such experience and knowledge, Manan has published in journals such as Stata Journal, Economic Inquiry, Southern Economic Journal, Social Science & Medicine, Empirical Economics, Review of the Economics of the Household, Journal of Military and Veterans’ Health, Appalachian Journal of Health, Journal of School Health, and Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior among others.

My rigorous econometrics training at SMU has helped me greatly by contributing to different fields of research in diverse interdisciplinary and academic environments.
