Dr Agata Pacho
MA MRes PhD
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a sociologist with a PhD from Goldsmiths, University of London. I joined LSHTM in 2020 to work in the Policy Innovation and Evaluation Research Unit (PIRU) on the Evaluation of the Integrated Care and Support Pioneers in England (2015-2020) and the Evaluation of the implementation of the UK Antimicrobial Resistance National Action Plan. Before, I was based at the Institute for Infection and Immunity at St George's, University of London, where I assisted in research on novel diagnostics for sexually transmitted infections.
I also hold an MRes in Sociology and an MA in Gender and Culture, both from Goldsmiths, University of London.
I co-lead seminars and mark on the Sexual Health module at LSHTM. I have experience in developing and implementing teaching programs for Sociology students. Before joining LSHTM, I taught at Goldsmiths and developed two modules for Florida State University: Sociology of Mass Media and Sexual Health in Modern World.
My research interests include health services, antimicrobial resistance, diagnostics, sexual health and HIV. I use qualitative and quantitative methods.
