I am an incoming doctoral student and an MSc Public Health graduate from LSHTM. I have an interdisciplinary research interest in migration health and social policies in low-and middle-income countries, particularly in Southeast Asia. Previously, my training at UCL BSc Population Health (Data Science Pathway) has equipped me with a growing understanding of social research methods, epidemiology, advanced quantitative data analysis and visualisation skills using R statistical software.

Research

Following my MSc thesis, “A Scoping Review on the Health and Education of Migrant, Stateless and Refugee Children in Malaysia”, I dived deeper into a qualitative research project on the same topic funded by the WHO Asia Pacific Observatory on Health Systems and Policies. I attribute my research interest to my lived experience in a South-South mixed-migration context seen through a public health lens, as well as volunteering activities at a UNHCR-affiliated school for refugees and asylum-seeking children.
