Personal profile

Research Interests

As a medical anthropologist trained in global public health, my focus is on improving health care and outcomes for vulnerable populations in low-resourced areas by providing data for evidence-based policy and educational decisions. Frequently working work with interdisciplinary teams, I bring a deep understanding of qualitative research design and delivery in mixed-methods or stand-alone projects. Health topics I am familiar with include NCDs (diabetes, cancer), care of the older adult (polypharmacy, osteoporosis and falls prevention, improving care for people with UTIs or pneumonia), palliative care, blindness prevention and malaria. I have worked in Africa (Zambia, Tanzania, Angola), Asia (Vietnam, China), Canada and Northern Ireland.
