Experiences & Accomplishments
Tulane University
Tulane University
New York University
My research aims to answer critical questions and inform practice at the intersection of gender, sexuality, and health equity. I am a public health social scientist with a background in anthropology and gender and sexuality studies. While the majority of my training has been in qualitative research methods, I have a robust skill set of theory-informed mixed-methods research talents. I work from an intersectional feminist orientation, prioritizing collaboration, community-engaged approaches, action-oriented interdisciplinary teams, and communicating research to communities. My current research interests include HIV prevention and surveillance; transgender and non-binary health; sexual minority women’s health; sexual orientation, gender identity and expression (SOGIE) measurement; and health seeking behavior and healthcare access.
