While working as a pediatrician in a conflict zone area of Sudan, I was inspired to transition from clinical medicine to public health. I wanted to make a positive impact through systematic epidemiologic investigations and development of effective disease prevention policies. Since then, I have earned my Master of Public Health degree from Emory University and have been working as a Research Assistant and Medical Translator.
Some of my career accomplishments include the following:
• Analyzed and interpreted a large data set for my MPH thesis on Fragile Families and Child Well-Being, which included over 5000 observations.
• Increased number of beds in South Kordofan, Sudan hospital from 50 to 70 by pursuing funding from national health insurance companies
• Coordinated efforts with rural hospital’s infection control division in delivering medical care during outbreaks of H1N1 and coronavirus.
In addition to my research and clinical strengths, I am a skilled communicator/presenter and have the ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams. Also, I take the initiative in keeping informed of and learning new epidemiologic trends and methods. If you have any questions or comments about my work, please feel free to contact me. I am always eager to make new professional acquaintances.
