A lecturer in Social Statistics and Demography in the University of Southampton. A social demographer interested in sexual and reproductive (and other) health issues in different parts of the world.

I joined the Department of Social Statistics and Demography as a lecturer in 2015.

I conducted my PhD studies in Demography at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The title of my thesis was “A Life Course Perspective to Abortions in Finland”.

I hold an MSc in Social Research Methods from LSE (2012) and an MSocSci in Sociology from University of Helsinki (2010).

Previously I conducted an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded overseas placement in the Guttmacher Institute in New York in 2014, and worked as a researcher and project coordinator in University of Helsinki and in the Population Research Institute of the Family Federation of Finland (2009-2011).

At LSE I assisted in teaching quantitative research and demographic methods as well as provided research assistance within some of the department’s research projects.

I spent a year in École Normale Supérieure in Paris in 2007/2008 studying sociology and ethnography.

Research interests

My research interests include sexual and reproductive health, access to family planning services, and dynamics of pregnancy intentions. I am also interested in the effect of life course events on health and wellbeing later in life. I use longitudinal, multilevel and event-history modelling as well as other advanced quantitative methods in my research.

Research Projects:
Medication abortion in restrictive settings – characteristics and health literacy of women obtaining misoprostol
