Andréa Becker is a PhD candidate and NSF GRFP fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center. As a medical sociologist, her research looks at how gender, sexuality, and race shape the way we understand health, medicine, and our bodies.

Her current project focuses on hysterectomies among people with chronic reproductive illness (like endometriosis and fibroids) as well as trans and nonbinary people seeking gender affirming care.
