I completed my BA at King's College London and my MSc at the London School of Economics and Political Science in Health Policy and Economics.
After my studies, I worked as a management consultant at IQVIA for pharmaceutical and biotech companies, advising on pricing, market access and portfolio stratgies. It was during this time that I developed an interest in the role of businesses in society and how business organizations can balance their social impact with financial goals. This question motivated my academic research to date and I plan to continue on this path in the future.
I was always reminded of the important role of academic research for businesses, even during my time at IQVIA when a client came specifically to us having read a working paper on health technology assessments I wrote during my MSc at LSE [Link to paper].
My most meaningful research contribution will always be co-authoring with my mother, who completed her PhD as a medical doctor in 2019.
The paper we co-authored presents the results of a randomized controlled trial on the effectiveness of a balance training program to reduce falls and risk of fractures in post-menopausal women. [Link to paper]
