Dori is a PhD Scholar at RegNet whose research focuses on the governance of the commercial determinants of non-communicable diseases, with using the case study of tobacco in Fiji and Vanuatu. The focus on governance strengthening with a functionalist approach marks her current work which draws from the governance for health, neo institutionalist, and business regulation scholarships.

Dori holds a Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy, a Postgraduate degree on Health Care Services Management, and a Master’s degree on Public Health Policy, Planning and Financing. Her master’s research on the Hungarian tobacco control governance mechanisms was conducted under the WHO Country Office of Hungary. After spending years in the private sector as a consultant, she changed direction when she became the Director of Civil and Humanitarian Affairs at the African Hungarian Union. Later she got involved as a junior expert in a bilateral collaborative agreement for health policy tasks between WHO Regional Office for Europe and the Hungarian Government in 2016.
