For my doctoral research (awarded with no corrections after viva voce in November 2019), I conducted a multimethod study where I investigated women's abortion and abortion-related experiences in two districts in Karnataka, India. Drawing on some of these data, I interrogate the role(s) of community health intermediaries in an article published in Social Science & Medicine. Articles drawing on my PhD work are under review and in preparation. My thesis is embargoed for 24 months.
I was privileged to be supervised by Professor Ernestina Coast and Dr Tiziana Leone. Dr Emily Freeman offered additional expertise and subject knowledge to the team, taking on an informal supervisory role. My doctoral research was made possible by an LSE PhD studentship (2015-2019).
