Aasli’s research interests center on gender, fertility, and family planning, with a particular focus on women’s contraceptive autonomy in the Global South. Her dissertation project examines the measures and methodological approaches used to study fertility change and family planning behavior as well as the challenges with their application in high fertility settings. She also conducts research that applies data analysis techniques like topic modeling and bibliometric analysis to published literature on the determinants of family planning behavior to understand the state of knowledge in the field.
