I am a doctoral student in sociology at New York University. I study reproductive health, family formation, and science and technology.
Current Research Projects:
My dissertation research is on the rise (and stabilization) of multiples resulting from assisted reproductive technology over the last 30 years. I am interested in both the organizational and interactional elements that influence patients’ course of care and pregnancy outcomes. I am interviewing physicians, scientists and patients for this work – please contact me if you would like to participate in an interview.
Along with my co-investigator, Mary Patrick, I have recently completed an interview-based study of women who have considered or undergone elective egg freezing in the New York City metro area. Look out for a published article soon.
Diagnosing Potential Pregnancy in Contraceptive Counseling Sessions
I am currently working on an analysis of how medical providers diagnose patients with pregnancy before it is possible to use a pregnancy test.
