Lisha is reading for a DPhil in Clinical Medicine at the University of Oxford. Recognising the opportunities she has been afforded to study abroad, she feels responsible to be an advocate for African development and to contribute positively to our continent’s prosperity. She is excited to serve as convener to the AfriSoc conference 2023.

Her research interest is in child and adolescent health, particularly HIV and its effect on growth through puberty. Prior to Oxford, she worked as a medical doctor in South Africa. She hopes to one day contribute to public healthcare strategies to improve healthcare systems and access to care across the continent.
