PhD Student, Global Health, McMaster University

I am a CRE Scholar and PhD student in the Global Health Program at Institute for Applied Health Sciences McMaster University Canada. My proposed PHD research focuses on racialized and newcomer women's health, particularly with Intimate Partner Violence. My study considers the extent to which an Afrocentric praxis have been applied in research that examines Intimate Partner Violence experiences among Black, African, and Caribbean women in Canada. I also work as a Program Manager in the Violence Against Women (VAW) sector. My experience is in both VAW and the public health sector, working with women living with HIV, survivors of gender-based and sexual violence, newcomers, refugees, and women with precarious status.
