Emily Treleaven is a PhD candidate in UCSF's Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Her research examines how migration, urbanization, and gender shape young children's health and health disparities in South and Southeast Asia. Her dissertation studies the effects of migration on child health in Cambodia, including the impact of remittances on care-seeking for children, the role of children’s changing living arrangements in health disparities, and decision-making processes for child health in migrant-sending households. In Vietnam, she works with UCSF and the National Children’s Hospital to study the mechanisms through which son preference impacts girls’ health, and women’s knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to sex-selective abortion. Emily is a Graduate Student Researcher at UCSF, where she supports research and impact evaluations on reproductive, maternal, and child health in West Africa and India.
