Expertise

My research focuses on the interrelationships between social structures, cognitive processes and behavior in relation to human reproduction. In my dissertation, I examine the predictors and consequences of ambivalent pregnancy intentions for first births using cross-survey multiple imputation methods to simultaneously analyze three nationally representative datasets as one complete data source (National Survey of Family Growth, National Survey of Fertility Barriers and National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent health). Another line of my research focuses on formal and informal care provision to aging adults. In particular, I focus on ways social institutions shape the allocation of resources and the provision of health care. My research areas are linked by a fundamental interest in the implications of social changes for health and wellbeing. Over the past year at OSU, I have worked as the project manager of the HATCH Project. The HATCH Project is a longitudinal cohort study examining maternal childhood adversity and exposures during pregnancy associated with adverse maternal/child health outcomes. Our interest in exposures during pregnancy include stress and environmental toxins. We are currently in the recruitment phase of the study.
