I started my PhD studies at University of Sheffield in Autumn 2017, with funding from the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health. I had previously received a master’s degree in Public Health from Imperial College London and an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science from King’s College London.

I have a longstanding interest in the health of marginalised populations, and have several years' experience in the non-profit and governmental sectors in both the UK and Belgium.

Aside from my research & teaching activities at Sheffield, I also co-ordinate African Platform for Migration and Inclusion in Health (APMIH), a research and advocacy non-profit project.
