I am a mixed methods specialist and
current PhD Candidate with an ESRC scholarship. My
research areas focus on sexual and reproductive health
and rights, gender, adolescence and mixed methodologies.
I have a strong background in designing and conducting
qualitative research, including focus groups and
interviews, predominantly in LMICs. I also have good
experience working with large datasets (particularly DHS
and PMA2020 datasets), and can perform standard
statistical analyses using R. I am able to work across
sectors and organisations and have a track record of
producing varying types of publications, including
peer-reviewed articles, blog-posts, and internal
consultancy reports, as well as in organising events and
key stakeholder meetings for collaboration, collection
and dissemination of research.
