Dr. M. Nicole Warehime received her doctorate in Sociology from the University of Oklahoma in 2008. Her main research interests focus on child and family advocacy. First, her dissertation considers various aspects of child health and well-being in relation to the health insurance coverage of the child and the family. Stemming from this research, Warehime researches the family structure and the likelihood of health insurance coverage and subsequent effects of the type of coverage.

Second, Warehime investigates domestic violence, child and spousal abuse. She has been involved in an intensive training program investigating child abuse and neglect. Currently, Warehime joins a research team from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center analyzing the trends and aggregate data of child maltreatment fatalities in Oklahoma.
