Current research project

My PhD research focuses on dynamic interactions between NGOs and local communities, health and education services in Malawi. In particular, I focus on how those interactions shape the implementation of interventions aimed at improving adolescent reproductive health and girls’ education and how these interventions relate to girls' lives. I have conducted 9 months of ethnographic fieldwork in a rural area in Mangochi District, Malawi. This research is part of a GLOBVAC funded project that explores the role of International NGOs in the formulation and implemenation of global maternal health policies in Malawi (NGOMA).
