My research aims to understand the learning experiences of clinicians with no or limited emergency care training opportunities and using LIFE platform (www.oxlifeproject.org) focus on how, by leveraging adaptive feedback mechanisms, it can be designed to deliver context-relevant ‘intelligent’ training to health-workers in low resource settings.

My research interests are in Global Health and Social Epidemiology, Maternal and New-born health in low-income countries and Data Science.

Prior to starting my DPhil, I was a research officer at KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research programme, supervised by Prof Mike English (Nuffield Department of Medicine, Oxford University) working on the intersection of health systems strengthening and governance (specifically looking at quality of paediatric care), health informatics, and contemporary debates on health capacity strengthening vis-à-vis social epidemiology. I have been recognised for my work in the field of health informatics and social epidemiology with awards and grants from the Wellcome Trust and UNESCO’s Institute of Lifelong Learning.
