I am a dedicated Public Health Researcher, holding both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Midwifery. At present, I am pursuing a PhD in Public Health, under the guidance of Dr. Zohra Lassi, Dr. Jodie Avery, and Dr. Mumtaz Begum. My research is centered around addressing sexual health disparities within marginalized populations.

My academic journey boasts a robust track record in women's health, complemented by comprehensive expertise in clinical and translational research within the domain of maternal and reproductive health. My commitment to advancing knowledge in this critical field is underscored by my significant contributions, including several publications in esteemed peer-reviewed journals, as well as the authorship of a book.

I am resolute in my aspiration to make a meaningful impact on sexual health outcomes among marginalized communities, leveraging my multidisciplinary background and research acumen to drive positive change.
