After my first degree in psychology, I completed a master’s degree in Global Health. Since then, my interest has shifted to the anthropology and history of Global Health which is where my current PhD work sits.

Research

My work is funded by the Medical Research Foundation as part of a multi-disciplinary cohort of PhD students working on different aspects of antimicrobial resistance. In this context, I am conducting a study in Uganda and the UK on the construction of knowledge around antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance combining ethnographic and archival research. My supervisors are John Manton, Laurie Denyer Willis and Alex Mold.
