Personal profile


After completing her PhD in public health, Asvini developed a passion for improving the health of vulnerable populations with a particular focus on sexual and reproductive health in young women. Her research at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and Royal Women's Hospital involved using validated sexual and reproductive health surveys and self-collection protocols to investigate the burden of unwanted sexual experiences and sexually transmitted infections in adolescent and young Australian women. She also has experience in developing cervical cancer screening protocols for women in India and Sri Lanka.
