Academic Interests

 

My research interests include the intersection of psychology and development policy and practice, neoliberal subjectivities, gender-relations, power structures, knowledge production, language and discursive negotiations. My specific research focus on promoting an understanding of how maternal and reproductive health policies transfer between the global-, national- and local levels, and how these alterations have consequences for people subjected to and dependent on these policies. The regional focus of the study is Malawi.
