I have a Master's Degree in Global Health, where I specialised in using qualitative enquiry methods to research topics in maternal mental health, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes mellitus. I have previously worked as a public health researcher investigating public interest in research participation and the use of electronic health records in research. My current role focuses on administration, communications, and project management for the CambPlants and Global Food Security networks at the University of Cambridge.
