International Development, Healthcare Access and Mental Health in Research

Guillaume Paugam welcomes Lise Cazzoli on the podcast this week, to talk about her DPhil in International Development. Lise focuses on how people living in areas hit by natural disasters can access healthcare, with a special interest in Haiti and Puerto Rico. In addition to healthcare access for physical illnesses, she also studies how people can get treated for chronic mental health conditions, prompting a more general discussion of mental health issues in research and for researchers. She also talks us through her fascinating field trip to coastal Guyana, and how that proved a defining moment in her DPhil research.
