Brief Biography: 

I am a passionate advocate for mental health, with expertise in global mental health and skilled in international research management and mixed methods analysis. I have a deep interest in implementation science, including designing and implementing health system-strengthening toolkits and community-based mental health interventions and research in low and middle-income contexts. My focus is on unpacking contextual complexities, barriers and facilitators of help-seeking behaviours, addiction behaviours and care provision to vulnerable populations across the lifespan. I am committed to making a difference in the lives of those living in vulnerable contexts, and I am dedicated to creating a world wherein mental health is part of integrated and accessible healthcare for all.
