I have got my master in “International Health” from Uppsala University in year 2011. During my trainings I grew interest in women’s status and effects of their status on children’s health. This led me to start my PhD in order to evaluate associations between different aspects of women’s status- including social support, autonomy and experience of domestic violence- with their mental health, feeding practices and child nutritional status in Bangladesh and Nicaragua. I have got my PhD in 2016 from Uppsala university and now I am working as a researcher in the department of women's and children's health.
