My PhD research explores the impact of media on women’s empowerment and women’s narratives in South Sudan. I have also studied the impact of media on maternal and child health; HIV/AIDS; malaria; education; peacebuilding; governance and elections; and climate change.
My research covers a range of media platforms (television, radio, mobile) as well as a range of media formats (drama for development, factual programming, public service announcements, mobile value-added services).
I have conducted research in 21 countries across Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe – including Bangladesh, Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Kenya, Niger, South Africa, Senegal, Serbia, Tanzania and Uganda.
In addition to pursuing my PhD, I work as an international development consultant for organisations with a media, information and communication focus. I have managed research for USAID, UNDP and DFID-funded projects.
