Shruti joined the Centre in March 2021 as Senior Public Health Research Specialist, and leads our work on race and racialisation in public health.

In this new programme of work she provides leadership in supporting the development of responses to racialised underrepresentation in public health data and priority setting and inequalities within the public health workforce, particularly in leadership positions.

Shruti works at GCPH in a part-time secondment from Public Health Scotland where she works for the rest of her week.

She brings knowledge and experience of working in public health and for racial justice, and has lived experience of racialisation.

She is also Chairwoman of Saheliya, a specialist mental health and well-being support organisation for women and girls (12+) with experience of racial inequality and gendered abuse in the Edinburgh and Glasgow area.
