About me

  • I am a PhD student in the Global Health, HIV and SRHR research group
    (GLoSH) [1]within the department of Public Health Sciences [2]at the
    Karolinska institutet.
    The health of vulnerable groups especially maternal- and child health is my
    passion. With an interest in infectious disease epidemiology and health
    behaviour I strive to understand how individual and health systems
    factors' influence health outcomes, disease spread and health management.
    Since 2013 I have been working on HIV-related projects in Europe and East
    Africa together with professor Anna Mia Ekström. Currently I am a PhD
    student, part of the WelTel [3] research team exploring prevention of
    mother to child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV in Kenya. My research explores
    the impact of an m-health intervention on different aspects of PMTCT through
    an RCT design, including retention to care. My research also explores
    the implementation of the Kenyan national defaulter tracing programe for
    PMTCT at different health facilities in Western Kenya.
    As a reseracher I strongly promote the the use of social and behavioral
    studies in combination with sound epidemiological data to ensure the creation
    of evidence-informed health policies. Policies that promotes health equity
    and enables access for all.
    In previous years I have been involved in advocay and policy formulation on
    sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). I have also worked with
    patient-management of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cancer
    for the pharmaceutical industry. In the future I aspire to become a
    specialist in disease control and prevention at programme management level
    and dedicate myself to the field of social medicine.
