Health, Demography and Quantitative Research Methods
I am currently a Master’s student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am also a Research Assistant under the mentorship of Dr. Patrick Habecker, Dr. Kirk Dombrowski, and Dr. Charles Wood. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Demography with a minor in Economics from the University of Zambia.
I first attended UNL as a Trainee under the Fogarty Aids Malignancies Training and Research International Program (AMTRIP) in 2018. Through the AMTRIP, I received training in social network analyses, network-based study design, and instrument development for a research project on barriers to service utilization among Kaposi’s sarcoma infected individuals in Zambia under the mentorship of Dr. Kirk Dombrowski.
My research interests are in health, demography, and quantitative research methods. I have been a part of several research projects conducted in Zambia. My role in most of these projects was to collect, enter, and analyze data. I completed a study on barriers to early diagnosis and treatment of Kaposi’s sarcoma from March 2019 to July 2019.
