A trained medical professional with extensive experience in the clinical aspects of health care. I also have widely varied experience in the administrative facet of health care, as with the Chairperson, I set up Pakistan's first Clinical Research Unit in Karachi. In 2010 I completed my Masters in Science in Public Health Research with a 1st degree. Currently I am working as Country Research Specialist and am completing a course on operational research. I am interested in building a quantitative and qualitative research initiative. I engage in research ethics controversies and biomedical/health care debates which I find exceedingly intriguing.
