I am currently working as a research associate on a project tiled ‘understanding fairness in data-driven AI for mental healthcare (an AHRC funded project). The project is to enhance understanding of equity issues relevant to the introduction of data-driven AI in delivery of mental healthcare service. The project runs from June 2022- January 2023.

Research interests

I recently completed my doctoral research at Health and Wellbeing department at Sheffield Hallam University. My research is titled ‘Exploring experiences of mental health among internal migrants in Nigeria. This is a qualitative study using an application called Zoom to explore their experiences and perceptions about mental health issues.

I have worked on several projects within the Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Hallam Student Union. My roles involved literature reviews by searching, screening, quality appraising, data extraction, and synthesising evidence. My roles also include recruitment, obtaining informed consent, data collection using one on one interviews and focus groups, and assisting in the creation of ethical approval. In addition, I am experienced in data analysis using thematic analysis. The outcome resulted in a journal article and a report. I also undertook surveys and thematic analysis.

I was recently elected Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Representative at Sheffield Hallam University Student Union and part of my role is to organise events with active engagement with BAME students to help improve the attainment gap experienced by BAME students in higher institutions. This led to the creation of a mentoring scheme to help BAME students achieve a sense of belonging and overcome barriers to their academic advancement.

Research interests: identity, gender, and diversity within different areas of public health, wellbeing, information/ data science, migration, mental health, and reproductive health.
