Broadly, my research merges biological and social anthropology to understand the interplay between power, knowledge, and the body. 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. My work is especially concerned with the bodily impacts of social inequalities across class, race, gender, and ethnic divides, and the development of intersectional, anti-racist science justice projects. I am also interested in the ways that historically marginalized scientists are shifting knowledge production in science.
I draw methodological and theoretical inspiration from genomics, epigenomics, archaeology, ethnography, queer and feminist science studies, indigenous feminisms, and decolonialism.
