Biography

I am a PhD student at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and Honorary Epidemiologist at Health Protection Scotland (HPS). My PhD is focused on understanding harms, mainly BBVs, associated with injecting drug use (IDU) and interventions which can be implemented to improve health and social outcomes among people who inject drugs (PWID). A large proportion of my PhD is dedicated to understanding the epidemiology and the response to the largest documented outbreak of HIV in over 30 years among PWID, concentrated in Glasgow city centre.
