Research

View my most recent research

My research program focuses on clinical care and patient-provider communication at the end of pregnancy, particularly regarding induction of labor and obstetric interventions. My research experience includes qualitative and quantitative studies of women's preferences regarding induction of labor, projects aimed at estimating the optimal timing of induction of labor utilizing decision analysis and cost effectiveness techniques, and examining the association between induction of labor and maternal and neonatal morbidity using the National Center for Health Statistics Natality Data Set.  

As the Director of the Deborah Kelly Center for Clinical Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, I help to support and facilitate exemplary collaborative research in obstetrics and gynecology.
