I have a background in public health and development sciences and a Master’s in health economics, policy and management. I am interested in topics within health policy and systems research as well as knowledge translation. My previous work experiences, as a project manager and research assistant were in several contexts and on different topics. I worked on projects around substance use policies for youth, mHealth technologies in refugee camps and costing of comprehensive sexuality education programs. Currently, I am a doctoral student at the department of Global Public Health at Karolinska Institutet. My doctoral research focuses on companionship during childbirth.
