I am a research degree student in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy at LSHTM. My project aims to examine gender norms as a barrier accessing sexual reproductive health services for adolescent girls in South Korea (Mixed-Methods Study). I will analyse what normative and non-normative factors affect adolescent girls' choices and action towards SRH services. This study will be conducted in South Korea where SRH access rate of adolescent girls is less than 50% despite the relatively well-equipped healthcare and universal health coverage system. I am supervised by professor Ben Cislaghi and professor Loraine Bacchus.

I completed my MA of International Development at Ewha Womans University (Seoul, South Korea) in 2019, specialising in Public Health. I have been engaged in the research projects promoting adolescent girls SRH and health care access in South Korea, Cambodia and Lao PDR. My recent research was about precariousness of young adults in South Korea and their self-rated health. I worked at Korea Verband e.V (Berlin) and have been actively engaging in activism on feminism and decolonisation for the last few years.
