I am primarily interested in opportunities in the fields of health law, public health, policy, and social justice. I enjoy working in and researching the intersection between law and public health.

My research areas (and recent publications) include ageing, health law, global health, leadership and governance, gender and leadership in the medical profession, research translation, and public health.

I have significant experience with undertaking qualitative research, literature reviews and report writing, and I have worked in a number of diverse research teams as a research assistant supporting research staff, and assisting with data analysis and report drafting.
