Between 2011 and 2015 I worked in the health and social care sectors. Initially, in social care provision and policy in the UK. I then specialized in global and community health, working at a number of NGOs in India where I lead a research study on participation in a rural diabetes care programme. Additionally, I worked extensively in East London, designing and delivering community engagement programmes in addition to my research activities.
