Professional Summary:

I am a qualitative demographer focused on reproductive health issues in the United States, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Substantively, I am engaged with sexual negotiation, adolescents, contraceptive use, abortion (incidence, sequelae, costs, attitudes), reproductive empowerment, intimate partner violence, and maternal morbidity. More recently, I have become engaged with reproductive health issues in humanitarian crisis contexts as well as capacity-strengthening activities with colleagues based at institutions with less access to resources, including reproducibility practices. I am currently working on:

·        Menstrual regulation, abortion and postabortion care among Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

·        Abortion-related maternal morbidity (near-miss and potentially life-threatening) in fragile states (Central African Republic and northern Nigeria).

·        Adolescent sexual and reproductive health in Uganda and Mozambique.

·        Capacity-strengthening through training on abortion research methods with colleagues in Sub-Saharan Africa.

·        Advancing qualitative data transparency through the sharing of study…
