Her research is funded by All Souls College and the ESRC Advanced Quantitative Methods Studentship. With specific interests in preventing violence and poor health outcomes among children and adolescents in low- and middle-income countries, Roselinde’s doctorate focusses on developing effective engagement and retention strategies for ParentApp, an app-based version of the WHO- and UNICEF-endorsed Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH) Teens intervention.

Prior to this work, Roselinde worked as a researcher on two multi-country studies aimed at adapting, optimising, and evaluating PLH in Africa and South-Eastern Europe.
