I have backgrounds in optometry, public health and epidemiology. I have been working internationally for about 30 years and for most of the past 25 years I have been working with refugees, displaced, war and disaster affected populations. I am very evidence-based and use a rights-based approach to the highest degree I can. I am a consultant that works with humanitarian relief NGOs and eye NGOs, currently working on a number of issues in Timor-Leste via Fred Hollows Foundation New Zealand. I am also a bit of an academic and currently lecture in refugee health and health and human rights to MPH students on-line. I am currently working on guidelines for eye care in the humanitarian setting and I believe that work being done by the people in this group could be well incorporated into the guidelines.
