Research Interests

I’m a PHD student in Biocultural Medical Anthropology.  My previous degrees are in international studies and sociology (BA) from the University of Mississippi and international health and development (MPH) from Tulane University.  Much of my professional experience has been in health policy, a field I maintain a strong passion for and one I hope to complement through a study of critical medical anthropology. I’m interested in planetary health, climate change, human-environment interactions, epigenetics, alternative healthcare delivery models, maternal health, and aging.
