I am an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow and NHS Public Health Physician based at the Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive, and Child Health (MARCH). My research interests are on the impact of conflict and migration on maternal and child health. Originally from Northern Ireland, I studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and worked as a junior doctor in London before specialising in Public Health. 

My research has primarily focused on improving our understanding of maternal health and mental illness in forced migrant populations. I have worked in the Middle East (Lebanon, Jordan, Yemen) and in Europe (Greece, UK), and have collaborated with a number of NGOs (Doctors of the World, Medecins Sans Frontieres, Save the Children) and local Ministries of Health. I am passionate about improving access to healthcare for migrants and am the Migrant Health Advocacy Lead at the Faculty of Public Health.
