I’m a¬†social scientist and researcher working in the rare disease field in Newcastle upon Tyne. My current role involves patient liaison and engagement in neuromuscular diseases.

I hold an undergraduate degree in International Relations and Modern History, and masters degrees in Modern History and Politics. My most recent academic research has been in relation to the political organisation and activities of the Zimbabwean diaspora in the UK, and in public attitudes towards immigration.

My interests include current affairs and history, traveling, music, photography and technology.
