I am an applied medical anthropologist. I study how people experience and talk about health, illness, and the body. I want to know how this connects to the rest of their lives--for example, who individuals feel they are, and how they fit into the world around them.

I am a biological anthropologist, occassional biohistorian, and accidental egyptologist. I am interested in ancient health and disease, trauma, and human sacrifice, but not necessarily in that order. The MA in Classical Studies that I obtained along the way has prepared me for none of this.
