Research description: Broadly, my research merges social and biological anthropology to understand the interplay between power and materiality. I am interested in the ways that social, political, historical, and molecular forces act together in the formation of both human and non-human biology. I am especially concerned with the bodily impacts of inequalities across class, race, gender, and ethnic divides. My work draws methodological and theoretical inspiration from genomics, epigenomics, archaeology, ethnography, queer and feminist science studies, indigenous feminisms, and decolonialism.
