Aalap Bommaraju

SOCIOLOGIST OF REPRODUCTION

Aalap does research on the sprawling array of power relations that shape our experiences of social and biological reproduction. They focus on how social movements shape institutional change in U.S. healthcare organizations and state institutions after the enactment of state and/or federal family planning policy. Their dissertation provides an explanation for how contemporary reproductive justice movement activists may overcome their relative lack of cultural and social authority within traditional abortion policymaking circles and build power by engaging with policy implementation processes to improve the quality and availability of abortion care. Aalap was recognized as an Emerging Scholar in U.S. family planning by the Society of Family Planning in 2020. They identify as transfemme, queer, and South Asian.
