GLOBAL HEALTH & SOCIAL MEDICINE
Isabel Fulcher is currently completing her postdoctoral training under Drs. Bethany Hedt-Gauthier and Eric Tchetgen Tchetgen. Her research involves developing statistical methods that can identify underlying causal mechanisms of potential interventions in settings where this proves particularly challenging, such as in the presence of unmeasured confounding in observational studies and spillover effects on a network. Her primary focus area for application of these methods is sexual and reproductive health, specifically related to HIV treatment and prevention, improvement of maternal health outcomes, and increasing access to family planning. She is also invested in statistical capacity building in Sub-Saharan Africa. Isabel obtained her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from Harvard University in 2018.
