Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My specialist area is interdisciplinary research, specifically related to the interactions of health and the environment. As an interdisciplinarian, my skills lie in bringing together knowledge and methodologies from different disciplines in order to tackle real-world problems. I have experience in managing and analysing large, complex datasets, and of carrying out mixed-methods research. 

My previous research focussed on micronutrient deficiencies in pregnancy in Malawi, exploring the effects of the physical and socio-cultural environment on micronutrient health, through analysis of corresponding soil, crop and blood samples, as well as questionnaires and qualitative observation. 

Desired research direction

I am open to collaborative projects of an interdisciplinary nature, particularly (though not exclusively) to those with a focus on health and the environment. As I have experience of working in a developing country, this is something I am keen to continue, however I also have an interest in public health research which aims to tackle inequalities within the Scottish context. 

Current teaching activities and interests

I currently teach on the pre-registration BSc Adult Nursing programme, and have previously taught on the Masters in Public Health. 

I am available to supervise Masters student projects, and I currently co-supervise a PhD student who is researching climate change-related health effects in Cameroon.
