Hi.
I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Social Policy (Demography and Population Studies), London School of Economics and Political Science.

My doctoral research is a mixed-methods 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.

I am an External Graduate Member of the Centre for Cultures of Reproduction, Technologies and Health (CORTH).
I am a member of the BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health journal's Editorial Advisory Board. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

My CV is available here.
