I am an epidemiologist working in health services research for vulnerable populations, with a particular focus on adolescent health, substance use, tuberculosis, hepatitis C, and research ethics.
My work at MSPGH is in the Justice Health Unit, investigating the health of adolescents and adults who have spent time in prison, and their access to health services in the community.
My postdoctoral work in the Department of Paediatrics is focused on tuberculosis in adolescents and pregnant women. My PhD was on the epidemiology of tuberculosis among adolescents in high transmission settings, including South Africa and the Philippines. My undergraduate studies were in microbiology and human physiology.
