My research interests are primarily clinical in nature in the areas of reproductive health, family planning and contraception. I hope to produce research with findings that have direct application to public health policies. My current research includes being the Principal Investigator in a Phase 3, randomized, multi-centered open-label study of a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system and Mirena for long-term reversible contraception up to five years. I am also a Co-Investigator on the Contraceptive CHOICE project—a prospective study of 10,000 women being conducted at Washington University in St. Louis to promote the use of LARC (long-acting reversible contraception (IUDs and implants)). I am a Principal Investigator in a sub-study of the CHOICE project entitled: Immediate Postpartum insertion of Etonogestrel Subdermal Implant Contraceptive Device: Impact on Bleeding Profile. Reproductive health issues are central to pursuing the goal of healthier families and communities.
