I am a social and reproductive epidemiology trainee interested in how structural factors influence reproductive health decision-making and outcomes both domestically and internationally. My work centers around reproductive autonomy and rights-based approaches to family planning. Before beginning my doctoral studies, I worked as a research fellow at Weill Cornell Medicine’s Center for Global Health, where my research focused on family planning education and infectious diseases. At the CPC, I’ll be working on a study examining fertility preferences and family planning use among adolescents in South Africa.
