My research focuses on international reproductive health, and I have experience working on projects in Mexico, Argentina, Peru, the Dominican Republic, and Mali. I am primarily interested in reproductive health challenges–access to contraception, unintended pregnancy, maternal mortality, and intimate partner violence–faced by women in rural areas both internationally and in the United States. My most recent work explores decision making and female sterilization in South Asia and Latin America. This study is the first to quantitatively assess the current state of informed choice across countries where female sterilization is a common modern method of contraception.
