Research Summary

My research team studies vaginal microbicides and the role that user sensory perceptions, and experiences using those products, play in overall acceptability and adherence to product use. Project LINK explores vaginal gel use, while Project MIST explores both gels and vaginal films. We use both qualitative and quantitative methods in our research.

Past or Present Projects Available:

Project LINK: Exploring the correspondence between user perceptions/experiences of vaginal microbicides and their physicochemical and rheological properties

Project MIST: Exploring the role of vaginal gel and film properties in sensory perceptions and experiences of users and their partners

Project MAPLE: Understanding how the biomechanical properties of intravaginal rings impact delivery method acceptability
