Bio Sketch

Since 2016, I have worked as a researcher at the Desmond Tutu TB Centre, where I’ve had the opportunity to work on a range of studies involving TB and HIV. My research has predominantly focussed on understanding the experiences of people exposed to and living with TB and HIV (and TB-HIV coinfection) in South Africa. I am interested in how people manage their treatment within the constraints of their social contexts. This includes interrogating the limits of medical interventions (in the form of pharmaceuticals, psychosocial support and interruptions along care cascades). Chronicity, syndemics, coinfection, adherence, and acceptability, are among the concepts I found useful to help think through the complexities of living with TB and HIV. Much of this research has involved mixed methods approaches.
