About me

Nancy is a PhD student in Social Research Methods at the London School of Economics and Political Science, as well as a health program and policy evaluator. She has an MPH from Tulane University and extensive experience working in global health development, specifically within the realm of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Nancy's perspective stems from postcolonial, decolonial, and anti-colonial theory in order to inform practical applications that take place in four schools of thought, practice, and research: public health, sexual violence interventions, international development, and gender studies. From this perspective, she uses qualitative research and evaluation methods - such as discourse analysis, community-based participatory research, and community asset-based mapping - in community-led efforts to decolonize global health and development.

Nancy's doctoral thesis explores how to apply anti-colonial and decolonial methodologies to collaboratively strengthen and create community-centered sexual and gender-based violence programs and policies in Zambia.
