Narinder is a senior scientist in the field of Health Inequalities with expertise in Ethnicity and Health. Her work seeks to explore and prevent ethnic inequities in health using a variety of approaches and methods.
Her work in this field has included:
- The use of life-course approaches and prospective cohort studies to explore disease aetiology and help elucidate early life determinants of ethnic disparities in cardiometabolic and vascular risk.
- Epidemiological analyses and data linkage to help fill data gaps on the health of all ethnic groups. This includes work to help identify, understand, and monitor ethnic disparities in health outcomes across a range of priority health areas including cardiovascular disease, maternal and child health, cancer screening and disease rates, and mental health.
- Qualitative research to explore ethnic disparities and inequities in access to, and experiences of, mental healthcare.
- Community engagement and coproduction in the field of ethnicity and mental health. Including community consultation workshops with ethnic minority groups, and engagement and coproduction with specialist third sector community mental health organisations. This includes coproduction of research ideas, questions and funding bids. Narinder also volunteers as a mental health advocate in the community: a role which includes signposting, supporting and advising community leaders, and speaking at community events to raise awareness of mental health and resourcing for emotional wellbeing and crisis in ethnic minority communities.
Narinder has anthropological interests in Global Mental Health, particularly facilitating a more balanced exchange of knowledge and evidence between the global north and global south. This includes providing research support and facilitating citizen science in resource-poor settings. Narinder is a visiting lecturer in Global Mental Health at the University of Cambridge and has developed and taught several courses and seminars on this subject.
Narinder is currently leading a programme of research on ethnicity and mental health. The priorities for this research have been driven and shaped by public engagement activities with ethnic minority communities and third sector community mental health organisations.
Narinder is the lead investigator on two NIHR funded grants.
