Research Summary

My research focuses on patient-centered outcomes research to address unintended pregnancy, contraception, and abortion. Current research projects include reducing high-risk sexual behavior in adolescents, the health-related quality of life impact of unintended pregnancy, the relationship between unintended pregnancy and preterm birth and maternal mental health outcomes, and the comparative effectiveness of hysteroscopic (Essure) versus laparoscopic sterilization.
