Research description

My research focuses on health systems resilience to extreme weather events. My PhD project aims to develop a model for preparing health service delivery for floods, by defining the effects of flooding on health and health service delivery and developing preparedness plans for healthcare facilities to mitigate the effects of flooding.

Teaching portfolio

I teach at the Master's level on health systems resilience, quantitative methods, public health in disasters, and systematic review methods.
