    Biography

    Virginia Berndt is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology. She earned her Master of Arts degree in Sociology at Lehigh University and her master’s thesis examined the impact of climate-related disasters on women’s health. Research-based on her master’s thesis has been published in Population and Environment and Social Indicators Research. Ginger presented findings from this thesis at two international conferences, including the International Sociological Association annual meeting in Toronto, Canada, and the Northern European Conference on Emergency and Disaster Studies (NEEDS) in Uppsala, Sweden. Ginger’s research on contraceptive access in disaster settings has won her the Natural Hazards Center Graduate Student Paper award and, in addition to being presented at conferences, has been published in Sociology Compass and Sociological Viewpoints. Her additional research stems from her five consecutive years of work as a research assistant on a team charged with qualitatively evaluating the statewide, governor-initiated Delaware Contraceptive Access Now (Del-CAN) intervention. She has presented research resulting from this evaluation at several conferences, including the annual meetings for the Eastern Sociological Society and the American Sociological Association. Her first-authored manuscripts resulting from these findings have been published in Health and Contraception. Ginger’s dissertation in progress centers on how women’s embodied experiences with contraception interrelates with its medicalization.
