I am a graduate student in sociology at New York University. I study reproductive health, family formation, and sexuality, employing both quantitative and qualitative methods. I am interested in how people make meaning of events, such as pregnancy, unwanted sex, and same-sex experiences.
Current Research Projects:
Along with my co-investigator, Mary Patrick, I am currently conducting an interview-based study of women who have considered or undergone elective egg freezing in the New York City metro area. Please contact me if you are interested in participating. More information about this project can be found at: http://www.eggfreezingstudy.wordpress.com
Pregnancy Among Queer Female Youth
I am working on a project on the prevalence of pregnancy of queer female youth compared to their straight counterparts, and exploring some of the reasons that might explain the difference. I am presenting this project at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in August 2016 in Seattle, WA.
Temporal Negotiations in Contraceptive Counseling Sessions
Along with Prof. Sarah Cowan, I am currently working on an analysis of how medical providers and patients negotiate and co-construct timelines in the contraceptive counseling session.
