I am a social scientist with expertise in survey research, longitudinal data, quantitative analysis, and data visualization. After earning my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Michigan in 2018, I joined the Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) at the University of Texas as a postdoctoral fellow.
As a sociologist and demographer, I study contraceptive use and reproductive health from a social ecological perspective. That is, I consider how individual traits, community traits, social inequalities, and public policy work together to shape health behaviors and health outcomes.
My work has appeared in Demography, Contraception, Women’s Health Issues, The Journal of Pediatrics, PLOS One, The Journal of Sex Research, and the Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities.
