Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



I started my PhD in October 2013, having completed my BA (2004) and MPhil (2007) at St. John's College, Cambridge.  

I previously worked in the Civil Service, including at the Department of Health 2007-2010 (mostly in the Office for Strategic Coordination of Health Research [OSCHR]) and the Department for Education (DfE) 2011-2013.  At DfE I worked mostly on issues related to children's services, including the role of local authorities.

I also spent seven months working as a volunteer for LEPRA India, a health charity based in Hyderabad (now in Telangana) and operating in seven Indian states, helping people affected by leprosy and other diseases of poverty.  I have been on the Research Advisory Committee of LEPRA's Blue Peter Public Health and Research Centre since July 2011.
