I have broadly based research interests at the intersection of geography, social sciences, and medicine. From a background as a health geographer, my active research to date has covered various aspects of environmental impacts on health and well-being. Key themes encompassed the spatial distribution of diseases as well as geographical dimensions of health inequalities. My main approach has been from historical and interdisciplinary perspectives. Through this I have gained a robust understanding of historical methodologies, while geography provided me with vital spatial analytical skills.
Having previously worked on infectious diseases, my current research is directed towards psychiatric care, seeking to understand the connection between society, space, and mental well-being.
