I’m a medical anthropologist with qualitative research experience in clinical studies.
I have seven years of experience in academia, conducting qualitative social science research on antimicrobial resistance in Southeast Asia. I completed a PhD in Public Health and Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where I focused on exploring the social and political contexts of antimicrobial resistance and care in Myanmar through an ethnographic study.
Prior to this, I completed a master’s in International Health and Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford where I examined the social role of diagnostic biomarker testing in antibiotic prescription. I also studied pre-medicine during my bachelor’s and spent four years doing lab-based research at Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. There, I completed an undergraduate honors thesis on chemoprevention mechanisms. I am therefore, well-versed in health and medicine, across different disease and therapeutic areas including febrile illness, cancer, diabetes, malaria, and HIV.
Real-world solutions should be holistic and go beyond the technical. To achieve this, I believe in the importance of listening to and incorporating everyone’s voices, particularly those whose lives we are most impacting – the patients.
I’m a qualitative scientist with research and consulting expertise in patient-centered outcomes and qualitative research methods.
I have over five years’ experience in health outcomes research, four of which were in a pediatric setting.

I’ve worked in primary care, as well as in the academic, clinical and commercial worlds. I’ve developed community health initiatives to enhance understanding of how emotions impact health behavior, and the personal, social and environmental impacts on patient adherence. Using psychological theory and techniques, I developed and delivered interventions for patients with long-term conditions, with a focus on enhancing exercise adherence in patients with chronic pain.
I’m passionate about translating research into practice. I enjoy working with both patients and healthcare providers to explore the best ways to support patients adhere to treatment recommendations.
I’m a behavioral psychologist specializing in improving adherence to medication for long-term conditions, and changing healthcare professional (HCP) behavior to improve services.
I’ve been working in the adherence field for more than a decade. I completed my PhD in adherence interventions at UCL and then worked for a behavior change agency before setting up Sprout with Lina in 2017. I focus on global and local initiatives to support people with long-term conditions with adherence and other self-management issues, and on projects focused on changing HCP behavior to improve services. I’ve worked for nine of the top 15 pharmaceutical companies, on more than 20 patient support programs.
I love translating the latest findings from academic research into workable, real-world solutions that can help people with long-term conditions and their healthcare team.
