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.

On the side, I contribute to the Health Diplomacy Monitor, a publication of the Global Health Diplomcy Network which tracks and reports on global health negotiations. In the past, I was employed with the International Division at the Canadian Public Health Association, working on tobacco control in sub-Saharan Africa. 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.

Teaching

I'm involved in various teaching activities for a number of LSHTM's Distance Learning Modules, including Conflict and Health, Globalization and Health, Issues in Public Health and Health Economics.

Research

I joined the Gender Violence and Health Centre at LSHTM in October 2009. My research explores the implementation and influence of an innovative programme aimed at the primary prevention of intimate partner violence in post-conflict Cote d'Ivoire. This will involve qualitatively assessing the influence of a 16-week male-targeted violence prevention curriculum on household gendered attitudes, norms and behaviours, and exploring the extent to which the implementation process may have affected expected programme outcoms. This project involves close coordination with partner organization, International Rescue Committee. 

Other research interests include the following: health policy and systems, global health, post-conflict contexts, women's health, gender violence, the influence of sex and gender on health, gender inequities in health, and human rights.
