Elizabeth Mosley, PhD MPH

Postdoctoral Fellow

Currently a postdoctoral fellow at RISE, Liz Mosley completed her PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan, where she was also an NIH Pre-Doctoral Trainee with the Population Studies Center. Her Master of Public Health and Bachelor of Science in Biology degrees are both from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Liz’s work broadly addresses reproductive justice, and her dissertation analyzed attitudes toward abortion, gender equality, and social welfare in South Africa and the US. Liz has studied a wide range of topics globally including abortion provider stigma interventions in the US, East Africa, and Latin America; sex work, housing instability, and joblessness among youth in Detroit; contraception and HIV PreP in East and Southern Africa; and trauma interventions for pregnant women in the US, Australia, and the United Kingdom. She has also worked as a public health practitioner: first, as an intimate partner violence preventionist at the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and later as a maternal and child health fellow with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in Uganda. After balancing a career of international and domestic work, Liz is eager to focus on sexual and reproductive health disparities in the Southeast, where she was born and raised. During the Post-Doctoral fellowship, Liz will use mixed and community-based methods to explore new areas of research such as improving the measurement of reproduction-related attitudes and evaluating the effects of immigration and socioeconomic policies on reproductive health equity. During her free time, Liz volunteers as a full-spectrum doula.
