BSc, BA, MPH, PhD
Researcher in Health Interventions
I am a mixed methods researcher with a PhD in public health. I am currently developing an intervention to help people who have experienced a stroke or TIA to measure their blood pressure at home.
Previously I was a post-doc researcher at Imperial College working on a study exploring the experiences of people living with HIV in London, in light of changing guidelines for HIV care and the clinical transformation of HIV from a degenerative and fatal infection to a chronic condition.
I completed my PhD in June 2013 under the supervision of Helen Ward (Imperial College), Helen Lambert (Bristol) and Peter Piot (LSHTM). My thesis investigated the relationship between labour migration and HIV in India and how it changes over the life course of migrant families, using qualitative and quantitative methods.
