Mariam is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Global Health. She is Deputy Director of the Global Health BSc. Her interests are in critical pedagogy, interdisciplinary approaches to Global Health education and issues of epistemic power related to the curriculum. 

She holds a medical degree (MBBS, King's College London), an International Health BSc (UCL) and an MPH (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). She recently completed a Master's in Education (Imperial College London), focusing her research thesis on the experience of "minoritised" students in Global Health education.

Mariam experiments with pedagogical approaches which attempt to address/acknowledge the structural inequalities in the sector. She has led curriculum co-design projects and collaborative education research projects with students and with people/colleagues with lived experience and she supports the innovative Community Group Placements (CGP), an experiential module for Global Health students to learn about local health inequalities in West London. She will be co-supervisor for a LISS-DTP-funded qualitative PhD project exploring the relationship between civil society and GH academic institutions in co-creating Global Health curricula. Mariam is interested in forming critically-informed collaborations with partners from institutions beyond Europe/North America. She was shortlisted for a Student Choice Award 2020 for Student Partnership.
