At the UCL Institute for Global Health, her doctoral research explores the construction of an individualised gender equality measure in Peru using existing household survey data. She is engaged with a participatory action research project against gender violence led by a network of community health volunteers in the Peruvian Amazon, and is also overseeing a complex community intervention to improve the quality of service engagement for homeless Indigenous Australians.
