Ms Oleosi Ntshebe is Postgraduate Research Student within Social Statistics & Demography at the University of Southampton.

I have previously taught for the Department of Population Studies at the University of Botswana where I am currently on study leave. I have been involved in a number of research projects in Botswana and at international level (Malawi, India and the United States). In addition, I have managed several research grants. I was Project Coordinator for the Pilot Botswana Social Science Research & HIV/AIDS Initiative (April 2004 to August 2007). This initiative was a collaboration between the University of Botswana and the Royal Tropical Institute, Netherlands. Total funding for the project was £63 533 (87 500 Euros).

I hold two graduate degrees in Population Studies (from the University of Botswana), in Demography from the University of Pennsylvania (USA), and an undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Botswana.

Research interests

My major research interests are child health, families and households. More specifically, I am exploring: 1) household formation, change, and dissolution, 2) the impact of fertility and marriage on household change, 3) the association between child stunting, diarrhoea prevalence and household composition, and 4) the way in which factors at individual and household levels contribute to observed inequalities in child stunting and diarrhoea prevalence. On a more general level, I am interested in socio-demographic processes that shape populations.
