I joined LSHTM as a research degree student in 2012. Before starting my PhD, I implemented public health interventions in New York City and internationally in the NGO sector. My first degree is in Anthropology and I have a Masters in Public Health from Boston University.
My research interests center on understanding perceptions and behaviours in relation to vaccination in humanitarian contexts. I am particularly interested in perceptions of new vaccines and sociocultural factors driving uptake and refusal in target populations. I am also interested in practitioner perspectives on the feasibility, effectiveness and sustainability of such interventions in said contexts. My PhD research explores such issues with respect to oral cholera vaccination among internally displaced persons in South Sudan.
