Research interests

My research broadly centres around posttraumatic stress disorder, interventions and well-being in vulnerable populations.

My PhD thesis examined the state of trauma-focused interventions for PTSD and the availability of psychological support for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in north-central Nigeria. The project explored strategies to improve the practice standard for trauma care for Internally Displaced Persons in north-central Nigeria from practitioners' and IDPs' perspectives. My long-term goal is to develop a practical, sustainable, scalable, culturally specific strategy for trauma interventions for underserved and displaced populations.
