I am currently completing my PhD developing a practice-based account of health system resilience in Sierra Leone. I am a medical doctor by background, specialising in paediatrics, and previously worked for the NHS for five years as well as in Sierra Leone supporting government child health services as a Medical Coordinator for an NGO.

My main research interest is in mixed-methods health system research in low and middle income countries, in particular interventions to improve access to health care. I previously worked as a Clinical Research Fellow in the Dept for Health Services Research and Policy researching UK local government alcohol policy, and coordinated the Ebola Response Anthropology Platform.
