About me

PhD student within the Global and Sexual Health (GloSH) research group at the Department of Global Public Health, Karolinska Institutet (KI) (since Sept. 2020).

Research description

Current work targets SRHR among hard-to-reach and hidden populations, with a thesis focusing on Myanmar's eastern conflict areas. Research interests are specifically the effects of inequality and food insecurity on health outcomes, including from infectious diseases such as HIV or HCV (Hepatitis C), as well as linkages to intravenous drug use among women and men. Further interests are global health policy, the use of infectious disease modelling in environements of high uncertainty, and development of innovative methods for use in populations without clearly defined sampling frames.
