Michelle earned her Doctorate in Health Sciences from the University of Surrey, United Kingdom. She examined men and partners’ experiences of prostate cancer in Trinidad and Tobago (TT) due to the reported alarming prostate cancer mortality rates. She conducted a split site study in the islands of TT in which she investigated men’s pathways to treatment at cancer centres focusing on ethnicity, beliefs and culture and how these impinge on help seeking and diagnosis of prostate cancer. Her thesis was awarded the 2019 Rosemary Pope prize for its contribution to healthcare education, practice, and policy.
Her post-doctoral research is geared towards population health research in cancer care among Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups within the Caribbean, the United States and the United Kingdom. She also has an interest in clinical trials involving complementary and traditional medicine and their role towards cancer treatment. Michelle is open to collaboration for similar research interests and peer-reviewed publications.
