Tracee is pursuing a Ph.D. in Political Science as well as an M.S. in Public Health Informatics at the University of Iowa. She is interested in social inequality, spatial politics, and health policy, as well as using big data to investigate spatial inequities and access to government-funded resources. She is currently working with Professors Rebecca Kreitzer and Candis Smith from UNC-CH on a project investigating the equity of the federally-funded Title X program and what they call "contraception deserts," or geographic areas with inequitable access to affordable family planning resources.
