I am a biocultural anthropologist and geneticist currently working as a postdoctoral fellow with the Neukom Institute for Computational Science and the Department of Anthropology at Dartmouth College. I am also a research affiliate with the Indigenous STS Lab and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin.
In the broadest sense, my work focuses on the links between power, knowledge, and the body. I am interested in the connections between social, political, historical, and molecular forces, and the ways that they collectively shape human and non-human biology. Much of my current work focuses on the DNA-level impacts of social inequalities across class, race, gender, and ethnic divides. In this work, I use a biocultural approach that merges genetics, epigenetics, ancient DNA, bio/archaeology, queer and feminist science studies, and indigenous feminisms to understand the ways that power and inequality become molecular.
