I have about 22 years of health care experience with research focused on newborn health, health technology and care provider capacity building using multi-stakeholder engagement approaches. I am involved with multiple local and international collaborative projects within low resource settings with support from JHPIEGO, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Johnson & Johnson; Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), WHO, WUN, and USAID. I have worked in PI, Co-PI, Collaborative and Research Coordinator positions within rural and urban contexts in matters pertaining to maternal and child health.

Some of my local innovations in knowledge translation include KMC Slings@1 and 2 to support newborn thermal care and maternal/family engagement. I am also involved with locally-made warmer technologies to support newborn/small baby thermal care in resource-limited settings, and technology-integrated care for newborn jaundice prevention and management.
