Biography

I'm a physician specialized in Public Health and Social Medicine. Since 2013 I have conducted interdisciplinary research in Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Thailand and France. My research has focused on illnesses impacting populations worldwide (including HIV, TB, HCV, HPV, malnutrition) and on health policies aiming at reducing health inequalities. I joined the RISK lab (link above) where my research focuses on how concepts of illness, perceived risks and health seeking behaviors inform our understanding of and ability to control Lassa Fever in Nigeria.
