Gracia studied Medicine and Medical Anthropology at University College London.

Gracia's interest in migrant health stems from childhood years spent in Thailand, Canada and Switzerland. Her DPhil aims to determine the prevalence, risk factors and potential interventions for perinatal mental illness in migrant and refugee women on the Thai-Myanmar border. She is currently conducting fieldwork in Mae Sot, Thailand, working within the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU), a field station of the Mahidol-Oxford Research Unit (MORU).
