MSc Public Health

Before joining LSHTM I studied a BA in Geography at Durham University where my chosen electives in Medical Anthropology sparked an interest in the field of global health. My dissertation research was focused on  the everyday experiences of individuals with food allergies. Since then I have become increasingly interested in non-communicable disease and nutrition and have particularly enjoyed my introduction to the commercial determinants of health through my MSc in Public Health course.

MSc Epidemiology

I am from Washington, D.C. and was previously a clinical research associate at a mid-size CRO. I mostly worked on gastroenterology and hepatology clinical trials, with a particular focus on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. During my undergraduate studies, I interned with the World Food Programme and worked in the US Donor Relations office. I have a BS in Biology of Global Health (and English!) and am excited to work with CGCC this year while pursuing my MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM.

MSc Public Health (General)

I am a medical student from Hong Kong, currently studying for an intercalated MSc in Public Health at LSHTM. Previously as part of the Asian Medical Students’ Association Hong Kong, I worked with marginalized groups such as disabled persons and migrants, and started to develop an interest in the specific challenges these vulnerable populations face in terms of equitable access and treatment when combating chronic conditions. I have also been involved in research on chronic conditions and mental health, and started to take an interest in the interplay of social setting and individual functioning. I aspire to bring the importance of understanding and addressing chronic conditions to the fore, to build an inclusive healthcare environment and improve health equity worldwide.
