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 family demographer and a medical sociologist. My research interests include fertility, contraceptive behavior, and reproductive health. In broad strokes, my work focuses on:
- social determinants of contraceptive use and method selection
- knowledge and beliefs about the risks and benefits of contraception and other medical interventions
- reproductive health service use
- 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, and The Journal of Sex Research.
