My research explores how social norms shape women and girls’ experiences of gender-based violence and poor access to sexual and reproductive healthcare. I am currently working on evaluation of the SASA! Together Radio Booster, an “edutainment” intervention seeking to shift social norms about intimate partner violence in Uganda. I also support the LINEA project, a global initiative using social norms theory to prevent sexual abuse and exploitation of children and adolescents. I have previously conducted research on the family planning community in Francophone West Africa, examining how programme and policy decisions can impact on women's experiences of contraceptive coercion.

I hold an MA in Social Anthropology of Development from SOAS, University of London, and a BA in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford.
