Visiting Lecturer - Wits School of Public Health, University of the Witwatersrand

I am an accomplished public health practitioner; with years of experience in health promotion, including social and behaviour change, policy advocacy, strategic communication, multi-stakeholder engagement, planning, designing, implementing, and coordinating public health programs and interventions for both communicable and non-communicable diseases, as well as emergency preparedness and response.

I am a mixed methods researcher; whose work emphasizes qualitative approaches. I have worked in various research capacities, providing me with experience in project conceptualization and management, proposal development, grant writing, data collection, data management, data analysis, and write-up of key findings as well as proficiency in monitoring and evaluation, evidence translation, including capacity strengthening and knowledge sharing.

I am enthusiastic about evidence-based decision-making. My research, interests, and publications include critical issues in addressing gender-based inequalities and strengthening health-promoting systems to improve public and population health, community health workers, food environments, commercial determinants of health, and recently COVID-19 impacts and global health security. This work includes being a published co-author of a textbook on primary health care.
