I am a researcher within the field of Migration and Community Resilience. In my role with CENTRIC I work on the MIICT project. I conduct qualitative primary research with migrants in three European Union (EU) countries (Cyrus, Spain and Italy) and analyse the findings to inform a co-design approach to the development and deployment of ICT solutions to facilitate greater integration of migrants across the EU. Cognisant of my role as a team member, I contribute to other projects across CENTRIC to support the overall objectives of our research centre. My doctoral research, prior to joining CENTRIC focused on the impact of globalisation on rural spaces in Africa with particular focus on the experiences and responses of rural residents to the land grabbing phenomenon. I also have relevant Public Health and International Development experience in program management, finance, communication and capacity building. I have developed excellent numeracy skills and, relevant experience in quantitative data analysis and statistical modelling using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) and Excel. My communication skills are adaptable to suit different audiences. I am a passionate individual with a track record of motivating and leading teams to achieve set targets. I am confident, enthusiastic and a swift learner with the ability to work in a fast-pace multi-functional environment.
