Brooke is a research analyst in the reproductive health and family formation research area at Child Trends. Before coming to Child Trends, Brooke spent five months in Uganda working in maternal and child health and conducted research on barriers to contraceptive access and the impacts of disease burden and nutrition on child growth trajectories. Brooke now works across women’s and adolescent health topics, such as teen pregnancy prevention evaluations, microsimulation modeling of change in contraception use on unintended pregnancy (FamilyScape), sexually transmitted infections (STIs), intimate partner violence, and family formation.
