About me

  • I am a PhD student at the Department of Global Public Health of Karolinska Institutet and a researcher at Centro Rosarino de Estudios Perinatales, a WHO collaborating centre in Argentina. I am a social scientist focusing my research in maternal and sexual and reproductive health. My PhD project is about power relations and agency in decision-making on mode of birth in Argentina. It is nested in an implementation study called "Appropriate use of caesarean section through QUALity DECision-making by women and providers", which aims at optimizing the use of caesarean section through the implementation of non-clinical interventions targeted at healthcare providers and hospital management, as well as women and labour companions.
