About me

I am a doctoral student in sociological demography at the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University. In my dissertation I study how local violence in the Colombian armed conflict has affected women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). I combine information from three sources: incidence of local conflict violence, survey data on individual women’s SRHR, as well as interview reports from SRHR organizations. The dissertation aims to fill a gap in knowledge about health outcomes of war, or how armed conflict as context affects individual women’s reproductive empowerment, measured as e.g. contraceptive use, fertility intentions and outcomes, gender-based violence, and access to reproductive health care.
