I was a research associate working at the Patient Experience Research Centre within the School of Public Health from 2013-2017. In that period I worked on a project exploring the experiences of people living with HIV  in London, with special attention paid to changing guidelines regarding treatment and the delivery of care services. 

I completed my PhD in June 2013 under the supervision of Helen Ward (Imperial College), Helen Lambert (Bristol) and Peter Piot (LSHTM). My thesis investigated the relationship between circular labour migration and HIV in India.

I now work in the Department of Primary Care at the University of Oxford developing a blood pressure monitoring intervention for people who have experienced a stroke or TIA.
