Associate Professor and Chair

I teach courses in population health, reproduction, class inequality, and quantitative research methods.
My research interests include reproductive health and family planning in the United States and Latin America.  Past publications include “Clandestine abortion in Latin America: a Clinic Profile,” in International Family Planning Perspectives, 2001, 27(1):34-36, and “Changing Frameworks in Attitudes toward Abortion,” co-authored with Professor Nicholas Danigelis, Sociological Forum 2001,17(2):187-201. My current research project analyzes the sociological framing  of legal changes in abortion in the state of Vermont. I previously taught at Universidad Centroamericana (Managua, Nicaragua), Dartmouth College, and Tulane University, and I have worked with the governments of Ecuador and Mexico to evaluate their national family planning programs.
