Experience

As well as finalising her PhD (International Health) thesis submission, Claire is currently collaborating with Marie Stopes Nepal on the research project: Abortion During Humanitarian Crisis: A Qualitative Study in the Aftermath of the 2015 Nepal Earthquakes.

As a passionate advocate for women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), Claire is  proud of her contribution to rights-based research as well as SRHR project development, implementation and evaluation. She has informed policy and practice through her various roles within the field of SRHR.

Leading research projects in Nepal and within refugee and migrant communities in Australia, has strengthened Claire’s cultural competency and awareness of socio-cultural, socio-economic, gender, religious and ethical concerns when working with vulnerable populations, particularly in relation to sensitive issues such as SRHR.

‘I believe that research conducted ethically enables vulnerable populations to have a voice and lays the foundation for the implementation of programs and interventions that can assist women and girls to effectively and holistically exercise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.’
