Halina Suwalowska


DPhil Student

Halina is a Wellcome Trust-funded DPhil candidate at the Ethox Centre under the supervision of Professor Michael Parker, Dr Patricia Kingori and Dr Mary Chambers (Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam).

Her research explores the current practices of autopsy in low and middle-income settings, focusing on acceptability of Minimally Invasive Autopsy. Halina is particularly interested in the ethical dimensions of the post-mortem examinations and the socio-cultural factors influencing perceptions of death and the autopsy procedures.

Before joining the Ethox Centre Halina worked for five years at the Wellcome Trust in London. In 2015 Halina went on a 12-month secondment to the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Vietnam and Nepal, where she conducted a qualitative study investigating the local academic climate as well as perceptions and barriers to undertaking science.

Halina holds an MA in Sociology and Social Research Methods from University of Wroclaw in Poland.
