Her research is situated at the intersection of women’s health and technology with a specific focus on pregnancy after loss. Attending to the rising interest in designing interventions for pregnancy and maternal health, alongside the ongoing call to question the stigmatization of women’s bodies, her research centers a common but tabooed experience of pregnancy after loss.
