I am currently a researcher at the Open Lab as part of the EPSRC CDT in Digital Civics. I have a bachelor’s in clinical nutrition & dietetics and a Masters in Public Health. My Masters concentrated on health management and policy and I have worked on projects related to social innovation, disaster planning and health regulations.
More recently, my research has gravitated towards working with refugees and marginalized communities. My work has encompassed working with community kitchens in Palestinian refugee camps and in exploring technology and reproductive health of Syrian refugees. I spent the last year visiting Syrian refugee camps in rural Lebanon to discuss with them their reproductive health problems and how they utilize technology. I am excited to build on my previous research in the Open Lab and develop digital technologies to improve the health of refugee communities.
