I started my career working in adult mental health for the NHS and worked with adults suffering from depression, anxiety, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress. Later on I moved within the NHS to the field of tobacco control as a smoking cessation specialist. After several years of clinical practice, I moved into academia and gained experience in research and teaching, both online and on-ground. I lectured in international universities in psychology as well as public health and I was the research associate for a large mixed methods study investigating breast cancer screening for Arab women, in Qatar. My PhD was a mixed methods study focused on cervical cancer screening for Filipino migrant women.
I worked for more than 5 years for Laurate Online Education in particular for the partnership with the University of Liverpool in a variety of roles such as Honorary Lecturer, Dissertation Advisor, Subject Matter Expert and for 2.5 years as the Programme Director for the Online Masters of Public Health. This role has provided me with great experience in online learning and supporting other academics in online teaching. I am passionate about online learning, and the way it can provide accessibility to students who could otherwise not access quality education. In addition, my experience in online learning has opened my eyes to the way elements of online learning can enhance our face to face teaching, and improve student experience.
