Dr. Mehta's interests are in the effect of public policy on quality of and access to reproductive health care in safety net systems in the United States and South Asia. She has specific interests in LGB-TGNC health, reproductive infectious disease, and immigrant & global health. Her current work uses participatory action methods to elicit marginalized patient perspectives on reproductive autonomy and care, and incorporates these perspectives into delivery innovations that seek to reduce reproductive health disparities, maternal mortality, and low-value care.
