I am a Research Fellow in the Gender Violence & Health Centre at LSHTM with over 6 years' experience conducting public health research. Grounded in an intersectional feminist epistemology, my research is action oriented and aimed at informing intervention design and development to prevent sexual exploitation and intimate partner violence. I am particularly interested in how social norms interact with structural drivers to perpetuate these harmful behaviours, and how they can be used as a tool for prevention.

I am currently coordinating a pilot cluster randomized trial of the Learning Initiative on Norms, Exploitation and Abuse (LINEA) intervention, a multi-component, social norms intervention targeting adolescent girls, men and the community to prevent age-disparate transactional sex in Tanzania.

I also coordinate the Collaboration on Infidelity, Romantic Jealousy and Intimate Partner Violence, which brings together partners from around the globe to better understand the mechanisms and pathways between infidelity, romantic jealousy, and intimate partner violence.

Prior to this position I supported the writing of evidence-based health policy reports at the Institute of Medicine in Washington, DC. I hold an MSc in Public Health from LSHTM and a BA in Psychology from Lewis & Clark College. For my MSc dissertation I conducted a secondary qualitative analysis of parental communication about age-disparate transactional sex in Uganda.
