PhD student at the Department of Global Public Health (GPH) at Karolinska Institutet and part of the Global and Sexual Health (GloSH) research group.
My research is under the Migrant and SRHR Project in Sweden.
I work on infectious diseases, including HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that may affect migrant men and women living in Stockholm, Sweden. Part of my work is on health policies tailored to migrant communities in Sweden, and involving various organisations, health care providers, and key stakeholders.
I have been involved in establishing a Migrant Communities and Health (MiCH) Network at KI for researchers working on topics related to migration, ethnic and minority groups in Sweden.
In addition, I have worked on collaborative research project in Colombia on SRHR and Zika virus since the 2015 Zika virus-outbreak. This research is in collaboration with the ICMT- CES University in Medellín, Colombia and funded by the HRP/TDR/PAHO at the World Health Organization. The KI and ICMT-CES University collaboration was supported by The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education during 2016-2017.
I have complimented my research interests by becoming involved in several courses and presentations at Karolinska Institutet:
- Course assistant and lecturer on Migrant Health in Sweden for HIV kurs - med individen i fokus ur ett globalt perspektiv
- Course lecturer on Zika virus at KI for Masters Programme in Global Health - Infectous Diseases
