My research is focused on the mental health of minoritized people, particularly women and birthing people. The broad aim of my work is to advance equitable provision of care and outcomes and to contribute to the understanding of all factors that produce current inequities.
My current projects in perinatal mental health include a scoping review of the perinatal mental health of black women and birthing people, a study of discriminatory and disrespectful language in the academic perinatal mental health literature, and an analysis of New York State and New York City PRAMS data to determine factors related to receiving mental health care for postpartum people with depression diagnoses.
Understanding the current challenges and experiences of learners and faculty who belong to groups that are underrepresented in medicine and psychiatry is another priority for my work. To this end, we are currently conducting a national survey of medical students and GME trainees focused on their educational experiences and needs.
An important aspect of my research process is to create pathways to medicine and psychiatry for students who are committed to promoting health equity in their current work and future careers. I encourage interested students to be in touch to learn about opportunities to get involved in my research.
