My research broadly focuses on the health and well-being of marginalised populations. I completed my PhD at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2016, focused on daily challenges and coping strategies of internally-displaced women in the Republic of Georgia. I currently manage the qualitative aspects of the RESPOND study, which longitudinally explores patient experiences with hypertension in Malaysia and the Philippines. I aim to further develop my expertise on the impact of conflict on health, partcularly on interventions which enhance health in challenging settings. I am interested in mixed methods, though I have used qualitative methodology primarily in my career.
I have contribued to a diverse range of research topics over the past decade, including projects exploring patient-physician interactions, HIV testing innovations, under-5 morbidity and mortality in low- and middle-income countries, and violence against women.
I lead seminars in the Helath Policy, Processes and Power module. I also tutor and supervise 1-2 Masters students per academic year.
I am the qualitative lead on the Wellcome Trust-funded RESPOND Study, which explores the patient pathways of economically marginalised hypertensive individuals in Malaysia and the Philippines.
I intend to further develop my second research stream building on my PhD research, focused on interventions to improve health and well-being amonst conflict-affected persons.
