She holds a PhD in Evidence-based Social Intervention from the University of Oxford, Nuffield College, funded by a Rhodes Scholarship.

In collaboration with the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit in Mwanza, Tanzania, funded by an ERC Starting Grant, she currently conducts the first longitudinal study on intimate partner violence among adult women in a low and middle income country. In a separate study, they are also looking at intimate partner violence among men in Mwanza.
