About

Photo

I am a Professor of Global Child health and co-Director of the Centre for the Health of Women, Children and Adolescents in the UCL Institute for Global Health. I am also an honorary consultant in Public Health.

I qualified from the University of Manchester and worked in clinical paediatrics in the UK and New Zealand and then with Medecins Sans Frontieres in Pakistan, South Sudan and Myanmar. I was appointed as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow and then NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in Public Health in UCL. I completed a masters in public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a PhD from UCL, funded by the Wellcome Trust.

 

I am chair of ICHG, a special interest group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. I was a commissioner and steering group member of the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health and am currently child and adolescent health lead in Lancet Migration. I am the lead for the Lancet series on 'racism, xenophobia, discrimination and health' and director and founder of Race & Health

My interests are in child and adolescent health, in particular: conflict and violence; migration, racism and xenophobia; the environment; and nutrition. My current research focuses on violence and mental health in Afghanistan, India and Sri Lanka and on climate and racial justice in Brazil, the Philippines and Uganda. I am committed to public engagement and advocacy to improve health.
