dczarI am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher  working with Dr. Jennifer Fishman in the Department of Social Studies of Medicine at McGill University. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology and a Graduate Certificate in Science, Technology, and Society (STS) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

My research focuses on issues related to gender, technology, and reproduction. My current research examines people’s moral lives in the context of their encounters with contested medical technologies and procedures. I have studied Christian women’s experiences with infertility and assisted reproductive technologies, how health care providers come to participate or not participate in abortion care, and women’s experiences with genetic carrier testing in reproductive health care settings. My work has been published in Gender & Society, Social Science & Medicine, and Health Expectations.

My Research Interests Include:

  • Medical Sociology
  • Gender & Sexuality
  • Reproduction
  • Religion
  • Science & Technology
  • Qualitative Methods
