I joined the University of Leeds as a Research Fellow in July 2023. 

I have expertise in policy analysis and am currently working on a Remission project evaluating the NIHS low calorie diet intervention & another project assessing evidence to support the global pandemic preparedness and response agenda.

Research interests

I have a strong foundation in economics with a keen focus on policy analysis and evidence-based policy for improving well-being. My research interests lie at the intersection of economics and health.
