I have a strong background in, and am passionate about, using media and technology for education and development - particularly within global health. 

I currently work at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, co-ordinating MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and OER (Open Education Resources). I work with academic teams across the school to design global health courses and create engaging content. I am also studying a Masters degree in Communication for Development at Malmö University.

I have over eight years of experience working for international development organisations in media and communications; across global health (with a focus on maternal health), sustainable organic agriculture, WASH, and education.

I'm experienced in project management and film production, specialising in educational health content, and have worked in South Sudan, South Africa, Ethiopia, Zambia, Tanzania and Uganda. I'm also experienced in managing partnerships with both public and private sector organisations, including NGOs, medical and technology companies, and Ministries of Health.

I've presented at a number of conferences and events including the Global Health Film Festival ("The use of film and animation in health education and training in low income countries"), the Communication4Development Network's Sights and Sounds of Change Festival ("The power of film in health"), the Tropical Health Education Trust's annual conference ("Using film for health worker training and health education"), and as a guest speaker at Barts and the London School of Medicine, as part of the Medsin Global Health and Film short course. I have also contributed to Knowledge4Health's Medium blog: Using Film to Convey Critical Reproductive Health Information to Those Who Need It Most. Films I've worked on have been screened at the Women Deliver conference, the House of Commons, Sheffield Doc Fest, and at the United Nations in New York.
