I am an applied biological anthropologist (with a foot in medical anthropology) who does research of food and nutrition, growth and development, and on food security and disease. My fieldwork takes place in Costa Rica, Southern Africa (Lesotho), and the U.S.
My PhD research in Senegal and Mali, West Africa investigates the promotion of children's rights for the thousands of Qur'anic school pupils in the region who beg to support their studies.
I am a biological/evolutionary anthropologist working in anthropological genomics. I investigate the evolution of complex traits related to diet and immune function using a combination of living and ancient human genomes.
I study organic food networks in Western Sicily and Palermo, integrating the moral economy and risk modernity approaches. I am interested in defining dimensions of social and ecological sustainability through the use of anthropological theory.
I am an applied visual anthropologist living in Seattle, Washington. I am interested in community-based research with migrant families. Together, we make short films called digital stories to share their experiences.
