Together with Giulia Gaudenzi, I also initiated and facilitated the seminar series Gender Health and Rights at KI in the winter of 2015.

 

I hold a Masters of Arts in Visual and Media Anthropology at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology and International Relations from the University of Sussex, UK in 2007. Previously, I have facilitated educational video projects (using the Participatory Video technique developed by Insightshare.org) with traditional birth attendants in Ghana and asylum seeking teenagers in Sweden. In addition, I have worked with LGBTQ rights in Sweden, and with cultural heritage as a method of building peace in the western Balkans. Finally, I have also been teaching assistant for the Stanford University MOOC International Women’s Health and Human Rights.
