I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Population Health. Prior to my PhD I spent four years working for Marie Stopes International conducting quantitative and qualitative research on family planning and abortion services in various countries in Africa and Asia. I previously spent two years in Swaziland designing, implementing and evaluating interventions to support children and families affected by HIV. My first degree was a BSc in Natural Sciences from the University of Durham (1999) and I completed an MSc in Reproductive and Sexual Health Research at LSHTM (2011). My MSc summer project was a mixed method exploration of attitudes towards sex education among families in London who are living with HIV.
