I am a research degree student in Health Economics focusing on concurrent TB and diabetes in the Philippines within the Joint PhD Programme between LSHTM and Nagasaki University, Japan.

Prior to and in parallel with my PhD, I have been working as a consultant for TB patient cost surveys with the World Health Organization Global TB Programme and Regional Office for the Western Pacific supporting surveys in Lao PDR, Tanzania, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Solomon Islands.

Currently, I am based in Geneva, Switzerland, and working as a technical officer in Global TB Programme in WHO Headquarters.

I obtained an MPH from Nagasaki University, School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health
