PhD Candidate at the University of Edinburgh and Global Health Consultant

About Me

At the 1st Global Forum on Childhood Pneumonia, Barcelona 2020
Welcome! I am a final year PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh, studying global health governance, health systems and policy. My thesis is titled "Governance of childhood pneumonia: assessing the effect of global narratives on national priorities and implementation in Bangladesh".

Apart from infectious diseases and child health, my other research interests are antimicrobial resistance, political determinants of health. I have previously conducted research in global health security, universal health coverage and private health sector engagement. I also have a Masters in Public Health and BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences.

I have one year of experience working as an Associate Consultant at Impact for Health International, where we use strategic facilitation, technical analysis and information design to help our clients optimise their development work. Currently, our health areas of focus are governance and private sector engagement, digital health, sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Feel free to browse this website to look at my publications, teaching experience and press engagements. Have fun!
