Research

I am a public health researcher with interest in epidemiology, mixed-methods, maternal health, sexual and reproductive health, mental health, migration health and health services research as a result of working in various projects in different countries. In the past I have worked as a lecturer of public health, public health officer and medical laboratory technologist. I also have a strong track record of publications, experience of peer reviewing articles for journals such as PLOS and BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, and have been involved in grant writing.

I currently work part-time as a postdoctoral researcher in maternity organisation and culture with Rachel Arnold. Together we are looking at organisational behaviour and culture in the NHS. We are using a mixed-methods approach to investigate how culture can create both barriers and opportunities when implementing change in different parts of the maternity services. Our study site is Dorchester hospital.

In addition, I am also working in other projects at Bournemouth University including midwifery education in Nepal and paramedics managing mental health patients.
