Short presentation

I am a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University.

My research focusses on the interconnections between the global and the intimate by exploring the lived experience of transnational commercial surrogacy.
During 2018 and 2019 I am undertaking fieldwork in Thailand, interviewing women about their experiences of acting as a surrogate mother.

I am also a project administrator in the research program Nordwit.

Keywords: commercial surrogacy migration intimate labour reproduction
