Ms Oyinkansola Ojo-Aromokudu
Research Degree Student
I am a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy at LSHTM. My project sits within the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Immunisation, a research partnership between LSHTM and Public Health England. My project looks at vaccination attitudes and behaviours in Black communities in the United Kingdom, with a view to informing the co-desgins of potential interventions to increase uptake.
I completed my MPhil in Health, Medicine and Society at the University of Cambridge in 2019 and specialised in the Philosophy and Ethics of Medicine. My thesis focused on 'off-label drug use' and the epistemic tensions it creates in Evidence-Based Medicine. An anthropologist by training, I recvieved my MA (Hons) in Social Anthropology from the University of St Andrews, in 2018 where I focused on the Anthropology of Migration.
