Research

Jen's prior employment was in health promotion and curriculum development before she decided to pursue a new career direction in public health. Jen's research interests lie in two primary areas. Firstly, she is interested in the relationships between maternal health and infant health outcomes and the mode of obstetric delivery. She is specifically interested in the exploration of health outcomes following caesarean delivery, as well as the cultural and socio-demographic influences that can impact women's birth preferences.

Jen's second research area is focused on the prevention of human trafficking, with a particular interest in raising public awareness about human trafficking to alter consumer purchasing decisions.
