David Swanson is a PhD student with IGH under the supervision of Professor David Osrin and Dr. Jennie Gamlin. His PhD project is focused on understanding the societal perceptions of masculinity among boys and young men in low-income settings to inform reproductive health outcomes for women. He will primarily be looking into the theoretical approaches taken towards addressing masculinity among this population and the long-term effectiveness of programs that work with boys and young men in such a manner. Prior to starting his PhD, David worked within cancer research and various international health organisations as well as receiving his MSc in Global Health and Development through IGH.
