I’m a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I also direct UW CORE, a research initiative at UW-Madison focused on addressing critical needs in reproductive health and healthcare in Wisconsin and beyond.
I conduct mixed-methods research on sexuality, gender, and reproductive health. In all my research and translation efforts, I endeavor to help folks achieve their sexual health goals—for example, avoiding unwanted pregnancy and STIs, maximizing sexual well-being—within the context of their lives, relationships, and communities.
