Dr. Weller joined the Department of Sociology in August 2012 after receiving her Ph.D. in Sociology from Arizona State University with a specialization in Medical Sociology and Statistics. She received her M.A. from the University of Colorado Denver and her B.A. from the University of Minnesota. Her dissertation looked at three contributing factors to health-seeking behaviors for women experiencing infertility which included social determinants, biological determinants, and contextual effects. Dr. Weller is the faculty representative for the Sociology Student Club, and in 2016 she took on the role of Coordinator for the Department of Sociology.
Broadly, my areas of expertise are population health with a specific focus on reproductive health. My research has looked at the spectrum of reproductive health behaviors considering the social determinants that influence adolescent risky sexual behaviors on one end, to the social determinants that influence when individuals seek out health care when issues of infertility arise.
