Research

I am currently the co-PI of the Work in Freedom Evaluation, a DFID funded evaluation of a multi-components intervention to prevent trafficking in persons in South Asia. I am co-leading the Study on Trafficking, Exploitation and Abuse in the Mekong Sub-region (STEAM), a longitudinal survey of health consequences of human trafficking, and offering methodological guidance for the evaluation of a large NGO-funded intervention to prevent trafficking in seven Asian countries. I am also part of the team analysing the WHO multi-country data on sexual violence against girls.

I the past 14 years, I  have been involved in more than 20 large Public Health research projects in Latin America, Africa and Asia, including two cluster randomised trials to prevent violence against women, qualitative studies and health service research.
