Moira Kyweluk (she/her/hers) holds a joint PhD/MPH from the Northwestern University PhD/Master of Public Health Program in Medical Anthropology. Her research specializations include the anthropology of reproduction in the United States, fertility/infertility and assisted reproductive technologies, trans* & queer reproduction and reproductive health, and biomedical testing and screening. Her current work concerns the role of direct-to-consumer medicine in family planning in the wake of advances in assisted reproductive technologies including elective egg “freezing” and expanded options for preconception genetic testing.

Past work includes investigating the experiences of transgender/gender expansive adolescents and their families considering fertility preservation (i.e egg and sperm “freezing”) prior to initiating potentially fertility-compromising hormone treatments during medical gender transition. Moira was previously a clinical research coordinator for the University of Pennsylvania Fertility Care Center. She received her BA in Anthropology (Honors) from Brown University in 2010.
