    Research Interests

    I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Health Services Research Group at the Centre for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast. My main interests lie in global health research as well as implementation science research, particularly in the field of cancer prevention and early detection.

    My current research focuses on early detection of cancer in Malaysia. I collaborate closely with Monash University Malaysia, the University of Malaya, the Ministry of Health Malaysia and the National Cancer Society Malaysia. From 2017-2019 I project managed the ‘Be Cancer Alert Campaign’, a large mass media campaign in Malaysia to raise awareness about breast and colorectal cancer. Currently, I am working on a study aiming to test the feasibility of population-based colorectal cancer screening in Malaysia funded by the UK Research and Innovation Global Challenges Research Fund (UKRI GCRF).

    I also have an interest in nutrition research and hold a BSc(Hons) degree in Public Health Nutrition. My PhD studies focused on designing, implementing and evaluating dietary behaviour change interventions in the workplace
