Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests lie with the legal determinants of health to remedy health inequalities.

My PhD research focuses on constructing, as well as testing, new indicators for a human rights-based approach to cancer control. My background in law and human rights allows me to adopt a new position on health governance.

I currently work at the International Atomic Energy Agency on the PACT programme to improve access to radiotherapy in low- and middle-income countries.

In parallel to my PhD and my current role, I lead a public engagement project on breast cancer: ‘The People Behind the Numbers’. The project culminated in a vitual exhibition in partnership with the London Global Cancer Week 2022 and a Perspective published in The Lancet Oncology.

I am a honorary member of the University of Bristol Law School, where I am affiliated with the Centre for Health, Law, and Society and the Human Rights Implementation Centre. I am a member of the Economic and Social Rights Academic Network of the UK and Ireland.
