I'm a human rights scholar focusing on sexual and reproductive rights research. Although trained in law, my work regularly wanders to other disciplines: from anthropology & sociology to public health & design. Whatever I do, I always try to be a bit of a troublemaker and not limit myself to "traditional ways of doing". 

My teaching and research communication have a strong visual component


Currently I'm interested in researching:

  • obstetric violence,

  • sexual & reproductive rights in places of detention,

  • sexual & reproductive rights and transitional justice, 

  • the role of health care professionals in human rights protection, 

  • sexual & reproductive rights in disability rights narratives.

I'm available for consultancies, workshop design, speaking engagements, conference collaborations & research supervision
