I obtained a BSc in Global Health from Queen Mary University of London (2015-2018). I also hold an MSc degree in Health Economics from University College London (2018-2019).

Before joining Queen Mary University of London, I worked as a Higher Executive Officer in Macroeconomic Statistics at the Office for National Statistics and a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Global Health at Queen Mary University of London.


Research Interests:

I have wide ranging interests in health economic evaluation and healthcare policy with particular focus on cost-effectiveness analysis in clinical trials, statistical and epidemiological analysis of non-communicable diseases, and the impact of economic recessions on health systems.
