Biography

Supervisor: Dr. Saara Greene

My doctoral research focuses on the healthcare experiences of women living with HIV during pregnancy and early postpartum. I aim to understand how HIV and obstetrical services are accessed, received, coordinated and delivered during the perinatal period and will integrate the perspectives of women and their healthcare providers. I aim to uncover how healthcare disparities emerge for women living with HIV and are connected to broader social relations, practice frameworks and institutional policies.

I am extremely grateful to have received a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship to support my doctoral studies.
