In this position I also developed good analytical skills, necessary to understand and clarify both statistical data and written reports for the oil and gas industry. I also communicated daily with editing teams in the field and ensured projects were on target for print deadlines.

Substantial experience in community health needs assessment, capacity building and project management. Key skills are excellent investigation, interpersonal and communications skills which are essential for interviews, interpreting research findings to stakeholders and writing reports of findings..

Currently, the mental health lead person with the Global Scholars from the University of East London under the leadership of Professor Nora Colton, Pro-Vice Chancellor. We are conducting qualitative research into the meaning and understanding of mental health in morocco. I am applying my capacity building skill and training staff in qualitative research methods, recruiting participants and supervising trained staff as the interview, memo and analyse interview data.
Most recently, I held an exciting role as a part-time qualitative research consultant for the University of East London Civic Engagement programme. Therefore, I was responsible for obtaining qualitative data through focus group interviews with undergraduate students and key informant interviews with stakeholders, then transcribing interview data and writing up case study reports.
I am an advocate for long life learning and delivery of education as the root for enabling individuals to empower themselves, as demonstrated in my role as a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Assessor with Derby College and as an Advice and Guidance volunteer with Broadway Homelessness and Support. Therefore soon after completing my postgraduate studies, I took on the role of a Visiting Lecturer/Seminar tutor at the University of East London where I plan and deliver seminars and lecturers for 100 undergraduate students, in groups of 25each.
In my spare time, I volunteer as a Research Assistant with the Institute for Health and Human Development at the University of East London. I conduct community health needs assessment, collect qualitative data through key informant and focus group interviews, transcribe interview data and thematically analyse the data for social impact assessment. As a result, I have gained a broad understanding of how social and economic circumstances affects communities, and I can apply varied research skills including, community needs assessment, field work, organising community engagement events. I was able to apply the research skills and knowledge that I acquired as a Volunteer Research Assistant with the IHHD when I completed a 10 weeks internship to Nigeria with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Partnership for Transforming Health Systems 11 (PATHS2). I worked in the monitoring and evaluation unit, and initiated the use of qualitative research method for evaluating the social impact of maternal health projects. I was responsible for applying the Logic Model for impact assessments on the Maternal and Newborn Child Health (MNCH) projects in rural and urban communities in Enugu and Lagos State, Nigeria. I conducted ethnographic qualitative research using ethnographic research methods to find out the views and perceptions of community members, and wrote social impact reports for the DFID 2014 review. The entire process was an opportunity to apply the theoretical concepts and academic skills from the classroom, and the research skills from my volunteer role, to deliver sustainable and transformative projects such as the pregnant women support groups for deprived and vulnerable communities in Nigeria.
Fundamentally, I believe that economic constraints impacts on people’s social capital, well-being and their ability to make informed decisions that will empower individuals to live independent lives. Therefore, I want to be part of a research team that connects science to policy, practice and equity in the society by tackling the root causes of inequality through education, information and evidence-based research.
In the words of Sir Michael Marmot ‘if we put fairness at the heart of decision making policies, health would improve and health inequalities would diminish’.
