I'm a Public Health and Social Policy doctoral researcher investigating the intersection of mental health and poverty within marginalized communities. The specific focus of my research is on the role of community based organisations and activist led initiatives in mitigating the inequalities faced by minority women impacted by poverty and/or adverse mental health in Scotland. My overarching research interests are in how gender and race inform mental health outcomes, socio-economic status and lived experience in general as well as evaluating policy as a site for social justice.
