Jonny is a Master of Public Health candidate and Kennedy Scholar at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. He was born and raised in Hartlepool in the North East of England. At Cambridge University he graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Biological Anthropology and completed his medical studies with distinction before becoming a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He is training as a General Surgeon and conducts research as an Academic Clinical Fellow in the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London. This winter, in collaboration with the Francois Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights, M├ędecins du Monde and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, he undertook research across Europe to investigate how inequitable access to healthcare impacts on the human rights of new migrants to Europe. His ongoing research interests are in the equity of access to healthcare for marginalized populations, and the organizational health of health systems in transition. After finishing his MPH, Jonny will return to the UK to undertake a PhD at Imperial College London investigating the impact of changes in political policy on the economic and clinical behaviours of health systems.
