I am a Medical doctor and PhD Fellow at the Centre for International Health, University of Bergen. My research interests center around the field of global maternal health, and include the role of indicators in maternal health, the quality of institutional childbirth care, maternal death surveillance and response systems and interventions to prevent teenage pregnancy. My main fieldwork experience comes from Burkina Faso and Ethiopia.
