Dr. Dev currently is a sex and gender science researcher. Her area of research interest is maternal and child health, specifically as it relates to the reproductive health of women; adolescent sexual and reproductive health; chronic disease prevention and management; and sex and gender differences in non-communicable disease outcome.
