I am a postdoctoral fellow with the Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) at the University of Texas-Austin. I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Michigan in 2018.
I am a social demographer and a medical sociologist. My research interests include fertility, contraception, reproductive health, and reproductive health policy. In broad strokes, my work focuses on:
- social determinants of contraceptive behavior
- reproductive health policy and service use
- LGBTQ reproductive health
- health numeracy, risk perception, and preventive health behaviors
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.
