I joined LSHTM in January 2022 as a Research Assistant for the SDG-HaW research consortium. My focus is on designing monitoring and evaluation frameworks for complex public health interventions delivered in 30 communities located near mining operations across nine high-, medium- and low- income countries.
In 2021 I completed my MSc in Public Health at LSHTM, where my dissertation explored the psychosocial impact of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis on gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men using qualitative data from the PROUD trial. I also hold a BA in Development Studies and Economics from London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
Prior to this, I was Senior Policy & Campaigns Officer at the National AIDS Trust (NAT) where I undertook advocacy and research promoting the rights of people living with HIV in the UK. I also led NAT's work with the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control monitoring the HIV and Hepatitis response across Europe and Central Asia.
Since 2020, I have written regularly for NAM - a charity focused on sharing accessible, accurate, and reliable information to support the fight against HIV and AIDS.
I co-lead seminars on the Sexual Health module.
