She is also involved in projects that explore the complex interplay between globalization and population health.
With a dedication to health equity and spatial justice, Martin-Ikpe’s research methodology is rooted in a blend of spatial theories, combined with both quantitative and qualitative techniques. A strong emphasis on community engagement, actionable policy insights and interdisciplinary partnerships further distinguishes her work.
