Research interests

I am passionate about promoting children's oral health through a multidisciplinary approach combining dentistry, health psychology, and behavioural science. My research focuses on implementing the behaviour change approach in the dental field and I am also interested in healthcare communication. My goal is to help children have healthy smiles and to improve communication between their parents and dental professionals.

I am also an academic who is interested in medical education. I am particularly interested in curriculum and assessment design. Inter-professional education is another area of interest to me because no speciality is completely independent, and all specialities intertwine and are multifaceted.

Other research

Her PhD project explores opportunities of providing behaviour change conversations to improve children's oral health in non-dental settings (Early years childhood settings).
