Research Areas:

I am conducting research on psychological consequences of infertility and infertility treatment. I have a grant from the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development to investigate psychological consequences of the use of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Although there has been much concern about how ART failures affect individuals and couples, the current research literature contains more gaps than answers. This research is the first large prospective study of the psychological consequences associated with ART failure, particularly repeated failure. The findings will guide the development of assessment and intervention protocols for couples using and considering using ARTs. I am now extending this research to increase our understanding of the psychological consequences of infertility and infertility treatment in African-Americans, a population that has been neglected in research to date.
