Research Assistant

Centre: Centre for Public Health & Policy



I work as a Research Assistant with the SHARE collaborative at Queen Mary’s University London. I have a wealth of community engagement experience which I have gained form having been involved in HIV work for over 25 years, much of which has been influenced by my lived experience. Some of my professional engagements include training, speaking and mentoring. I am an active member of the UK Community Advisory Board (UKCAB) and sit on the British HIV Association (BHIVA) Audit and Standards sub-committee group as a community representative. I am also one of 3 directors of 4M Mentor Mothers Network CIC, an organisation offering mentoring, support and training for women living with HIV going through the perinatal journey.

I have more recently co-authored a book ‘Our Stories told by Us’ exploring the African contribution to the UK HIV response. My particular interests are sexual health and health and wellbeing of black women.
