I'm an LSE Fellow in Health and International Development in the Department of International Development, London School of Economics and Political Science.

My doctoral research, at the Department of Social Policy; LSE, is a multimethod study investigating women's abortion and abortion-related experiences in two districts in Karnataka, India. In 2016-2017, I collected data in two districts in Karnataka, India in collaboration with the Women's and Children's Health Research Unit at KLE University's Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College.

My main supervisors are Professor Ernestina Coast and Dr Tiziana Leone. Dr Emily Freeman brings additional expertise and subject knowledge to the team, taking on an informal supervisory role. I was awarded an LSE PhD studentship (2015-2019) to support my research.
