She is also interested in studying influences of institutional factors on women’s agency, particularly the influence of patriarchy and social networks. She has been combining the use of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis for over ten years and is experienced in the use of a variety of techniques, extending this to the use of focus-group-discussions which have proven meaningful in her recent works. She was PI for a recently completed randomised controlled study that examines the role of informed choice in menstrual health.
