Global Health Research Consulting
I am passionate about global health research and writing, and I'd love meet collaborators with similar interests.
My areas of greatest expertise and interest in research are qualitative methodology and social determinants of global health. In the past, I have conducted research on health and human rights issues among Roma women in Marseille for my Masters of Science in Global Health and Population thesis at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I have also designed and conducted two separate qualitative research studies on wine culture in various parts of the world as a B.S./B.A. student majoring in French and Physiology at Southern Illinois University (published in Journal of Wine Research and Gastronomica).
Additionally, I have provided consultancy services for global health projects funded by USAID, the Institute of Reproductive Health, and Children International. These projects have included: analyzing and academic writing for a French-language qualitative data for a maternal and child nutrition study in DRC (published in Maternal & Child Health); analyzing and report writing for a French-language ethnographic data on perceptions of masculinity in a church-based setting in DRC; and designing a formative assessment training for qualitative researchers studying the impact of a substance abuse prevention, sexual health promotion, and life skill development program in Philippines.
