Biography Dr. Chen’s program of research focuses on management of dysmenorrhea. Characterized by menstrual pain, dysmenorrhea is a prevalent pain condition among women of reproductive age that puts women at higher risk for developing other chronic pain conditions later in life. Dr. Chen's goals for this program of research are to support dysmenorrhea management, improve women's quality of life, and to some extent, reduce the risk for developing future pain conditions among affected women. Dr. Chen’s work on dysmenorrhea entail (1) evaluating symptom measurement tools, (2) identifying symptom-based phenotypes, (3) describing health behaviors (including health service uses, information seeking, and use of self-management strategies), and (4) exploring potential complementary alternative treatment for dysmenorrhea. These studies build toward the development and testing precision-based interventions to support dysmenorrhea management. In addition to building her program of research, Dr. Chen has been engaged in interdisciplinary collaboration in the areas of pain and symptom science, women’s health, and complementary integrative health. Her areas of methodological expertise include advanced psychometrics, survey research, and meta-analysis.
