BDS (Hons), MFDS, MSc (Dist)
- I am a DPhil student under the supervision of Dr. Geoff Wong, Dr. Tanvi Rai and Professor Blanaid Daly, funded by the University of Oxford Clarendon Scholarship.
- The focus of my project is understanding interventions to improve access of homeless adolescents and young adults to primary care dental services. I will be exploring this topic using a realist approach, whereby I will be employing a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, in order to investigate contextual factors and causal mechanisms in understanding of complex health interventions.
- My wider interests include interdisciplinary and participatory approaches to research, social & health inequalities and empowerment of marginalised groups. I am also interested in further exploring the principles of scientific and critical realism in health research.
- I have previously graduated as a dentist from University of Dundee, and completed an MSc in Dental Public Health at University College London. I have worked extensively across various dental clinical disciplines, in addition to research and teaching. My clinical work is currently based in London.
