BPharm, M.Sc, PhD

Biography

I started working for the School of Pharmacy, the University of Auckland in June 2016, initially as a Research Assistant and subsequently as a Research Fellow in Pharmacoepidemiology and Health Outcomes. Previously I have held lecturer and partnership coordinator posts in both academia and non-academia. My research focuses on estimating real-world comparative treatment effectiveness and safety, assessing ethnic disparities in medication use, medication adherence, and medicine sharing behaviours.

I completed a PhD at the University of Auckland in 2016 with a focus on patients prescription medicine sharing behaviors. I also completed a Bachelor's Degree in Pharmacy and Master's of Science in Pharmacoepidemiology and Social Pharmacy at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia.
