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 aim to further develop my expertise on the impact of conflict on health. 

I'm currently involved with several projects. First, I manage the qualitative aspects of the RESPOND study, which longitudinally explores patient experiences with hypertension in Malaysia and the Philippines. Second, I am using qualitative methods to examine differences in mortality due to cancer across seven high-income countries. Finally, I am conducting an evaluation of an intervention in Zimbabwe to improve ART adherece amongst children. 

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.
