BAMI Research Fellow

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 spatial practices and environmental impacts on health and well-being. Key themes encompassed the spatial distribution of diseases, spatial practices in psychiatric institutions, as well as geographical dimensions of health inequalities. My main approach has been from interdisciplinary perspectives, encouraging fruitful collaborations within and beyond academia.

Having previously worked on infectious diseases, my current research is directed towards psychiatric care, seeking to understand links between society, space, and mental well-being.
