Research Degree Student
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a PhD student focusing on the structural and social factors affecting the lives and HIV prognosis of female sex workers in Nairobi, Kenya. My study is mixed-methods and longitudinal, and is nested within the larger Maisha Fiti study of women in Nairobi.
I am a recipient of the Commonwealth Scholarship.
Prior to starting my PhD, I worked for three years as a research assistant coordinating studies that explored HIV interventions in street-connected children and youth in Eldoret, Kenya. My primary focus was on implementation studies and pilot interventions.
I have an MSc in Mental Health Studies from King's College London, and a BSc in Medical Science from the University of Exeter.
