Manager/AMIS Hub Strategy Fellow

Bianca is currently the Antimicrobials in Society (AMIS) Strategy Fellow, helping the team with their goal of promoting and producing high-quality research on antimicrobials in society by building on the latest developments in social and interdisciplinary research for innovative and insightful solutions to antimicrobial resistance.

She has a MSc in the control of infectious disease from LSHTM and a BSPH in health policy and management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Gillings School of Global Public Health.

Bianca's research focuses on increasing and improving the use of evidence in the health policy making process. Her main areas of interest are in exploring the interfaces between evidence, policy, and politics, and in improving the use of evidence in health policy and programme decision making so that policy makers and practitioners can be more strategically agile in responding to complex public health issues.
