Biography - Dr Zeynep Gurtin

Dr Zeynep Gurtin is a Lecturer in Women’s Health at the Institute for Women’s Health at University College London (UCL), and holds an Affiliate Lectureship at the University of Cambridge Sociology Department.

 

Zeynep is a sociologist of reproduction and gender with research interests in the social, ethical, and relational issues surrounding fertility, infertility, assisted reproductive technologies, and new family forms. Her work brings together changing social trends in fertility with women's own personal accounts of their expectations and experiences, to provide insights about contemporary reproduction and relationships.

 

Her current research projects focus on single women’s fertility options, including egg freezing and solo motherhood; motherhood after 40; reproductive anxiety and choices; and fertility patients' experiences of treatment delays and disruptions due to Covid-19.

 

Zeynep's work has been extensively covered in the media, including BBC News, Women's Hour, Sky News, Stylist Magazine, Glamour, Grazia, and the Daily Mail. She occasionally writes for The Guardian on issues around reproduction.
