My research is focused on health equity, reproductive and contraceptive coercion, and abortion stigma.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

My commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility at Boston Medical Center is best highlighted through my role as co-chair of the department of OBGYN's Health Equity Committee. Through this committee, we have started three main projects. First, a poster campaign to show our patients that we know about maternal health disparities and we want to address them. Second, a departmental climate survey to address issues of inclusion in our own department and provide training and education to elevate the care we provide. Third, the creation of a patient advisory board. For too long we have excluded patient voices from our interventions and research projects. We aim to learn what patients think are important research priorities and include them in our ongoing projects.
I am also part of a CTSI funded research project to better understand Black birthing peoples’ feelings of disrespect and abuse on our labor and delivery unit. We hope to provide better care to black birthing people by identifying and eliminating practices that lead to disrespect and abuse.
