With a focus on reproductive health in an increasingly mobile, globalized world, my research investigates relationships between migration and household gender dynamics and the implications these may have on reproductive decision-making, family planning practices, and healthcare seeking. I am interested in how social structures are implicated in everyday experiences of health and how people seek care. Therefore, I draw on social theory to think critically about public health research and how best to design thoughtful and sustainable public health programs.
I currently work on several health communication projects at the Center for Communication Programs that aim to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women and men in Nepal, Bangladesh, the DRC, Côte d'Ivoire, and elsewhere around the world.
