Research Intrests

I am trained in mixed methods research. My previous research explores concepts of 'quality of care' in publically funded antenatal care facilities in Mumbai slums, well-being of Indian women in long term marriages and debate around end of life and life fatigue in the Netherlands. I am interested in working at the intersection of new medical technology and socio cultural context of a society in an interdisciplinary team.
