After obtaining my medical degree from Cambridge University (UK), I have spent the last 12 years working within the field of injury prevention at Johns Hopkins (Baltimore, U.S.). Now with a young family and back in the UK, I wanted to be part of a dynamic and innovative team slightly closer to home and was therefore thrilled to have the opportunity to join the George Institute, UK in February, helping to further develop their injury research portfolio. My main focus is on monitoring and evaluation of child road safety projects in 6 countries through the Botnar Foundation and working with longitudinal data to analyse gender differences and injuries amongst a large cohort of adolescents from Vietnam, Peru, Ethiopia and India.
