Personal profile

Research expertise

I am a health systems researcher with expertise in global health issues including maternal, sexual and reproductive health, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. I completed my MPH at Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia) in 2009 and my PhD at the Nossal Institute for Global Health, University of Melbourne (Australia) in September 2020. My PhD explored health system constraints to promoting respectful maternity care in Ethiopian hospitals and approaches to mitigating them, using the theoretical framework of complex adaptive systems.

I have worked in Ethiopian universities as an assistant lecturer and later as a lecturer and assistant professor. I have also worked as a Lecturer (Priority Setting and Planning in Public Health; Global Health Security and Sustainability; Epidemiology; and Evidence-Based Practice) and Research Associate (various health policy and systems research projects) at the University of Melbourne. I have experience and interest in global health, particularly implementation research aimed at ending preventable deaths, especially in low-income settings. To date, I have served as Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator on several regional, national and multi-centre research projects with findings published in peer-reviewed journals. As part of my efforts and achievements in global health, I have been selected as a Fellow of The Emerging Voices for Global Health; The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders; The Maternal Health Young Champions; The Policy Communication Fellows; and The New Voices in Global Health.
