Research Degree Student
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a PhD student with research interests in global health, health governance, and access to health and to safe medicines.
My academic background is in Political Sciences, International Relations and International Law.
Before joining LSHTM, I worked as a Project Officer at i+solutions, an international not-for-profit foundation based in the Netherlands and specializing in access to essential medicines. Before that, I worked as a Research Associate at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (National University of Singapore) where I participated in a two-year research project on regional health governance in Southeast Asia.
I am currently supervised by Dr Marco Liverani and Professor Richard Coker for my doctoral research project.
I am involved in the Global Health Policy course as a distance-learning tutor since September 2014.
My PhD research focuses on the circulation of falsified and substandard essential medicines in Southeast Asia, with a specific focus on poor-quality antimalarial treatments in the Mekong Region. The aim is to understand how the challenge of poor-quality medicines in framed by key policy makers in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, and to analyse how this is reflected within existing regulatory frameworks for access to quality medicines.
