Nafisa brings her passion for all things public health and research to her work. She is especially passionate about working alongside culturally and linguistically diverse communities to empower their self-determination, particularly through the development of solutions responding to self-identified community needs and capacity building for monitoring and evaluation. She enjoys utilising qualitative and mixed methods research methodologies in various contexts and knowledge translation in low-resource settings. She hopes to expand her evaluation and social research skill set through her work at FPC.
Prior to joining FPC, Nafisa worked as research and project assistant on multiple projects that have spanned areas such as mental health, child and maternal health, health economics, health literacy, disability and quality of life. In her spare time, Nafisa is leading the evaluation of a community mental health initiative and co-developing a new and pioneering data analytics and research centre.
Examples of projects Nafisa has contributed to include:
Nafisa holds a Bachelor of Biomedical Science from Monash University, and a Master of Public Health from the University of Melbourne.
