I completed a PhD in Public Health and Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2016. I completed a BA and MA in Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. My PhD thesis focused on resource losses and coping strategies of of Georgian women internally displaced by the 2008 war with Russia.

Since then, I have contributed to a range of qualitative and mixed-methods research projects broadly focused on the health of marginalised populations.

Teaching

I currently teach on the 'Reviewing the Literature' module.

In previous years I have taught on the Global Mental Health Distance Learning, Designing Disease Control Programs, and Health Policy, Processes and Power modules. 

I tutor and supervise 1-2 Masters students per academic year and sit on several PhD committees. I am interested in supervising students planning projects which fit into my research background described above.

Research

I'm currently involved in several projects. I am conducting a process evaluation of a private rental sector selective licensing scheme in the London borough of Hackney. The scheme aims to support the needs of health and well-being of residents in substandard housing. I also manage the qualitative aspects of the RESPOND study, which draws upon Strong Structuration Theory to longitudinally explore patient experiences with hypertension in Malaysia and the Philippines.

In previous projects have examined cancer patient pathways in high-income countries and conducted a process evaluation of an intervention to improve ART adherece amongst children in Zimbabwe. I have also contributed to projects focused on essential health care packages in Afghanistan, patient-physician interactions in the UK, HIV testing innovations, under-5 morbidity and mortality in low- and middle-income countries, and violence against women.

I have expertise in mixed-methods and qualitative studies, and in systematic reviews.
