Teaching

Marie-Celine lectures at the LSHTM, Universitatsklinikum Heidelberg, and the Charite Universitats Medezin Berlin on gender analysis in global health research; gender-based violence and the social determinants of health; ethics and safety in researching gender-based violence with adults, adolescents and children; and politics, power and identity in global health.

She has also served also a tutor for MSc Public Health students, and currently serves on the advisory committee for a DrPH student.

Research

Marie-Celine brings over a decade of experience in applied research and evaluation concerning adolescent development, sexual and gender-based violence, education, economic development, humanitarian response and gender justice. She has designed, led, supervised, analysed and reported on research and evaluation, and provided technical support to programmes, in nearly 40 low- and middle-income, and conflict-affected countries across Africa, South America, the Middle East and South Asia.

Her research interests concern the intersections between:

1) Prevention of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) against adolescent girls and boys;

2) Adolescent girls' development in the transition to adulthood in low income and conflict-affected countries;

3) Structural inequalities and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) as social determinants of health over the life course.

She also serves as School-related Gender-based Violence (SRGBV) Evaluation Specialist and subject matter expert for a 5-year cluster randomized controlled trial for the prevention of SRGBV, increase in early grade reading skills, and retention in Ugandan primary schools with Panagora Group and NORC at the University of Chicago. She further serves as subject matter expert for a cohort study in Malawi on adolescence, violence, education and developmental trajectories.
