I am concerned with the intersections of knowledge and practice, particularly with how conceptualisations and understandings of social groups influence healthcare and social policies.

Various topics aligned to Public Health and policy, including epidemiology and statistics, research design, health inequities and improvement, and sustainability in healthcare practices.
