I am a PhD Scholar in Population Health and Human Factors at Trinity College Dublin. For my PhD, I am exploring household medication practices and safety vulnerabilities in laypeople through the lens of systems thinking. I am also a qualified pharmacist in Ireland. I have a strong interest in (health) equity, global health, population health, health services research and global development practice. For my Laidlaw research project, I investigated the therapeutic potential of a natural-occurring vitamin called ergothioneine, mostly found in mushrooms, on the development of idiopathic and bleomycin-induced lung scarring in lung cells. Beyond that, I have had extensive research experiences across medical humanities plant metabolomics and pharmacy practice. During my free time, you'll most likely find me practising yoga and meditation in my room! If you're interested to have a chat about anything, don't hesitate to drop me a line! Look forward to hearing from you! :)
