Dr. Shannon N. Wood's research focuses on the intersection between social determinants of women’s health, most notably gender-based violence, and adverse reproductive and sexual health outcomes. As a Senior Technical Advisor for PMA and PMA-Ethiopia, Dr. Wood leads research surrounding reproductive coercion, intimate partner violence, and partner dynamics, and works with in-country partners to increase PMA’s data utilization. Dr. Wood is particularly interested in the use of mixed-methods research to improve measurement surrounding sensitive topics and the development and evaluation of community-based interventions. Her research aims to enhance safety and improve reproductive and sexual health outcomes for vulnerable populations in low-resource settings.
Dr. Wood has a PhD from the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with a focus in women’s health epidemiology and a Masters of Science in Reproductive and Sexual Health Research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
