I initially trained as a Registered Nurse in Vancouver, Canada, and subsequently developed an interest in global issues. I completed a BA in International Studies, and an MA at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs in Ottawa, Canada. My Master's concentration involved armed conflict analysis and management, and my research explored barriers to treating sexual violence in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

I have contributed various articles to the Health Diplomacy Monitor, a publication of the Global Health Diplomcy Network which tracks and reports on global health negotiations. I have over ten years of experience as Registered Nurse in various health care environments in Canada, the United States and Australia, most recently providing emergency care to survivors of sexual assault and partner abuse. In the past, I was employed with the International Division at the Canadian Public Health Association, working on tobacco control in sub-Saharan Africa.

Teaching

I'm involved in various teaching activities for a number of LSHTM's Distance Learning Modules, including: Conflict and Health; Health Policy, Process and Power; Globalization and Health; Sexual Health; and Issues in Public Health.

Research

My doctoral research explores the different pathways and associated processes toward behaviour change (and change failure) experienced by men who voluntarily participated in a 16-week Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) prevention intervention in post-conflict Cote d'Ivoire. The intervention itself was evaluated using a cluster randomized control trial, the results of which were published in BMC Public Health 14(1) in 2014.  

My other research interests include: understanding the overlapping risk factors for different forms of inter-personal violence; social norms on masculinity and feminity as risk and protective factors for violence; global health and security policies and programmes to reduce violence; the processes and pathways to behaviour change to reduce violence; evaluating policies and programs to reduce violence; addressing violence in the context of humanitarian disasters.
