Public Health Researcher.
I am currently a Research Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My work focuses on antimicrobial resistance (AMR), specifically on antibiotic use in the private informal sector. I currently work on the Antimicrobial Stewardship in Agricultural Communities project, and have worked on projects in Cambodia, India, and Pakistan. Prior to this, I served with the Peace Corps in Kazakhstan, worked with a community-based health organization in Ghana, served refugees in the United States, and worked in racial health disparities research. My interests are in community health, sustainability, and local food systems.
I speak Kazakh (advanced), and Spanish (beginner).
I am a holistic gardener and a dog walker, and live in the UK with Matt Kusner
and our rescued dogs, Nora Ruth and Karl T.
