I am a sociologist and with a background in Biochemistry, MA in Public Health (Nottingham Trent University) and a PhD in Sociology and Public Health (Nottingham Trent University). I am currently a lecturer in the Global Public Health Unit within the Wolfson Institute of Population Health, where I teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

I have experience working in and on health issues facing Black and Minority ethnic groups in the UK and work collaboratively on various international health projects on health promotion, non-communicable diseases through the lens of the social determinants of health, and implementation of innovative healthcare. I am involved with BAME Health outreach in East Midlands, to promote awareness on cancer and diabetes prevention and management. I have been involved in various community projects among the Black and minority ethnic groups and I am a strong advocate for community-led approaches to healthcare, health promotion and community health, and upstream intervention.

  • Role of cultural beliefs heterogeneity on self-management behaviours at different multilevel scales
  • Non-communicable disease (NCDs) among BAME communities
