I am a lecturer and research assistant at the department of International Health and Social Management at Management Center Innsbruck, Austria. In my lectures and research I address issues in human rights and bioethics, with a particular focus on gender, reproductive health and assisted reproduction. I am about to complete my PhD studies in Political Science at University of Innsbruck, writing my thesis on "Prenatal Sex Selection and the International Agenda". I have a background in International Health Care Management, studied in Innsbruck, Oslo and Charleston, and was a visiting PhD researcher at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden and at De Montfort University (Reproduction Research Group) in Leicester, UK. I am an active board member of the UN Women National Committee Austria.
