I am a Research Fellow on the Pathfinder Initiative, working on evaluating and synthesising evidence from real-world examples of implemented climate change mitigation actions and their impacts on health.

I trained and worked in clinical medicine until I completed my Masters in Public Health in 2016 at LSHTM and committed to a career in research. I then worked for the Centre for Evaluation in 2016/2017, which sparked my interest in evaluations. I started a PhD in 2017, with an affiliation to the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck, University of London, studying the decision-making process around colon cancer chemotherapy.
