|Postgraduate Research Student in the Department of Sociology|
I am a PhD researcher in the Department of Sociology. I joined the Department after working for nearly a decade in the development sector of the Philippines. I have contributed to several policy advocacy campaigns leading to the enactment of child-related laws. I also led policy research projects on preventing sexual violence against children and teenage pregnancies. I hold a graduate degree in Public Policy and Management from Birkbeck, University of London as a Chevening scholar and an undergraduate degree in Development Studies from Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines.

Field of Study
My doctoral research project focuses on understanding the views of young people on sexual violence and its prevention through creative participatory methods. I am co-producing knowledge and shared understanding of sexual violence and abuse and proposed solutions to preventing and addressing it with several groups of young people (13-18 years old) in Northeast England through a series of participatory workshops. My PhD is funded by the ESRC NINE DTP studentship.
