Current Position: Researcher at the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute at the Australian National University (ANU).
Brief Bio: My dissertation, entitled “Understanding Women’s Contraceptive Decision Making and Use Dynamics in Nepal,” looks at how specific socio-economic, demographic, empowerment, and programmatic factors intersect in determining women’s contraceptive choices. Since then I have worked on various research projects at academic research institutes in Singapore and Australia on research areas ranging from marriage trends in Southeast and East Asia to social policy, family and children’s wellbeing in Australia.
I am currently working with Professor Bryan Rodgers from the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute at the Australian National University on a project developing indicators of multiple family disadvantage using the Longitudinal Survey of Australian Children. The project further seeks to examine the consistency and continuity of family disadvantage longitudinally.
