Nichole's research focuses on the intersection between forced migration and health. Centered around the reality of limited access to healthcare within conflict zones and displacement camps, her research examines how communities navigate available services, how these communities cope when needed services are limited or non-existent and the informal institutions that are created in the absence of formal healthcare.
