A youth researcher whose primary goal is to generate scholarship that supports the holistic wellbeing of youth who experience cumulative and convergent risks to healthy development. Specifically, Oluwaseyi’s interest has focused on what can be learnt from considering how, especially prior to intervention, youth maneuver risk in everyday life. Her research, which targets the identification of risk and promotion of healthy development among marginalized youth, is a critical step towards alleviating health disparities and socially constructed barriers to positive youth development. The research is grounded in her practical experience and interdisciplinary training in public health, sociology, demography, and social methods, and combines quantitative and qualitative approaches. Recently, she has also focused on the acceptability and cost-effectiveness of adolescent interventions, made new commitments to interdisciplinary dialogue in the study of maternal and child health, and written on the role of mentoring schemes in developing research capacity and career progression for junior scholars.
