Associate Professor in Public Health.
Senior lecturer in Social Work, Department of Social and Psychological Studies.
My research interests mainly concern the following areas: the social context of mental health in young people, understanding the complexity of exposure to harassment and intimate partner violence, and the links between inequalities and well-being across life. I’m working with both quantitative and qualitative methods, and value the dynamics of interdisciplinary research. I teach research methods, epistemology, social epidemiology, sociology and gender and health. A critical intersectionality perspective with a specific focus on gender and power is central in my research and teaching.
