Senior Research Fellow on Public Health and Gender-Based Violence, Sheffield Hallam University

I am a Senior Research Fellow in Disparities and Global Perspectives in Health and Wellbeing research group and a Doctoral Researcher at Sheffield Hallam University. I lead 'Identity, Difference and Marginalisation' research cluster within the group and lead coordinator (research) for Hallam Guild Group - Migration, Refuge and the University. I am a trained social anthropologist, public health professional, and an experienced interdisciplinary researcher with a proven track record of success within research and development. I consciously consider the social, political, cultural, religious and economic dimensions and dynamics of whatever problems I work on or study. My broader research area is Global Public Health, in which I research on women's health and wellbeing, gender, sexuality, violence and the intersections among these areas. My research is primarily focused on exploring and understanding the notion of honour and its relationship with honour related violence and killings in South Asia and the UK within the theme of gender-based violence.
