I joined the LSHTM Office in Berlin in 2019, where I conduct social science research as part of a grant funded by the UK MRC Wellcome Trust Health Systems Research Initiative, that I also manage, which explores the intersection of migration, gender and effects on health systems in South Africa - the MiGHS grant.

I have an MSc in Public Health and a PhD in Public Health and Policy, both from the LSHTM. My PhD explored the role of gender-related social norms in sustaining intimate partner violence in Mwanaza, Tanzania.

Before working in research at the LSHTM, I was engaged as a research consultant for various developmental organisations and research institutes, working at the humanitarian development nexus, on applying social norms theory to prevent gender-based violence and violence against children.
