I am a PHD student in the Department of Global Health and Development, Faculty of Public Health and Policy. My background includes an MSC in International Social and Public Policy Research from the London School of Economics and Political Science, an MA in Health Social Science from the Mahidol University, Thailand and a B-pharm from the University of Pharmacy, Yangon, Myanmar. I have worked as a researcher and activist, with a specific focus on violence against women and girls since 2011. I have contributed to a lot of policy research on VAW in Myanmar, and have been very involved in lobbying and advocating for the development and implementation of the Prevention of Violence Against Women Law. My MSC dissertation analysed the intergenerational effects of witnessing mothers' abuse during childhood and their daughters' experience of partner violence employed a mixed-methods approach, was awarded the Delia Ashworth prize for outstanding performance in social work.

My supervisors are Dr Meghna Ranganathan and Professor Cathy Zimmerman. I will be invovled with the Health outcomes of Child Domestic Workers project.
