Research and Teaching Interest

Dr. Bornstein is a mixed methods researcher focused on sexual and reproductive health (SRH), including fertility, infertility, contraceptive use, and abortion. She is keenly interested in how fertility and infertility are social constructed and experienced. In all of her research, Dr. Bornstein incorporates a reproductive justice framework to understand how individual experiences and health outcomes related to SRH are shaped by structural and social inequalities. Currently, Dr. Bornstein has three primary lines of research focused on understanding 1) infertility and perceived (in)fertility within different populations, 2) reproductive decision making among LGBTQ+ individuals, and 3) abortion patient and provider experiences.
