Patricia Tum, BSc MSc


Research Coordinator

Centre: Centre for Public Health & Policy



I am the Research Coordinator on the COVER-Me project, based within the Centre for Public Health and Policy. I currently manage details of the project, support in research and teaching at the centre. I am also a prospective PhD student.

I have a BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Manitoba (Canada), and an MSc in Global Public Health and Policy from Queen Mary University of London. I have previously worked and done research in clinical settings in Kenya and Canada, mostly in HIV ART resistance and Bilharzia.

My research focuses on social determinants of mental health and health inequality, studying aspects related to lived experience and the welfare of people with long-term disease. I explore possible interventions to improve access to equitable healthcare.


Research Interests:

My primary research interest is to reduce health inequalities and improve the quality of life for people living with long term disease i.e., cancer and kidney disease. This ranges from working with young people and minority ethnic groups, with a particular focus on mixed methodology.
