I joined the Institute of Health & Society in 2015, soon after obtaining a Master's degree in Public Health with International Health. I currently work as a research assistant within the institute on a range of applied epidemiology studies and also provide support for undergraduate student projects.
Prior to this, I spent time in the Philippines working with the deaf community on a range of projects aimed to promote the rights and well-being of this group, including improving young adult health education. I have a background in Biomedical Science.
