dczarI am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Sociology at the University of Cincinnati and the Ohio Policy Evaluation Network. 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‚Äôs 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 make decisions about participation in abortion care, women’s experiences with genetic carrier testing in reproductive health care settings, and how policy restrictions on reproductive health care impact patients and clinicians. My work has been published in Gender & Society, Qualitative Sociology, Social Science & Medicine, and Health Expectations.

  • Religion
