I graduated early from Medicine at Queen’s University, Belfast with a BmedSci. Having spent summers volunteering in India and Kenya, I decided to pursue a career in the development sector. I worked as medical coordinator for a construction NGO operating in South Africa before studying for my Master’s Degree. I graduated with an LLM in International Human Rights Law from the Irish Centre for Human Rights at NUI, Galway in 2010 – particularly focusing on conflict resolution and global health. I currently manages the Irish office of Hospice Africa, a Uganda-based NGO implementing a cost-effective model for palliative care across sub-Saharan Africa. I believe that access to healthcare remains one of the starkest examples of global inequality, and that innovative solutions are needed to address these issues both in Ireland and overseas.
