About

MPhil in Demography
London School of Economics and Political Science.

I am a first year MPhil / PhD student at the LSE, in the Department of Social Policy. I am researching the relationship between masculinities and abortion-related care trajectories in Ghana, using mixed methods. I hold an MSc in Social Research Methods from the LSE (Distinction) and an MSc in Anthropology, Environment and Development at University College London (Distinction). I am funded by the ESRC 1+3 Studentship in Demography and Population Studies.
