PhD Scholar in Population Health & Human Factors | Pharmacist, Trinity College Dublin
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! :)
Trinity College Dublin joined the Laidlaw Network in 2018. The Laidlaw Programme offers undergraduate students at Trinity the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and experience to become active global citizens and future leaders.
Laidlaw Scholars work with an academic supervisor on a self-directed, independent research project and take part in a suite of integrated leadership development activities which culminate in a challenging applied leadership experience. Laidlaw Scholars join a community of learning, driven by curiosity and collaboration, which enables diverse voices to make a meaningful impact.
The Laidlaw Programme at Trinity is open to undergraduates in the second year of a four year programme or the second/third year of a five year undergraduate/integrated masters programme.
