Assistant Professor of Anthropology

Ph.D., Anthropology, Northwestern University, 2017

My research focuses on understanding the interactions between the social and biological forces that produce and reproduce inequalities across generations through mechanisms of developmental plasticity, immune function, human energetics, and nutritional health. I am a biocultural anthropologist with an active field and laboratory research program. My current research is situated in the community of Nuñoa located in the southern Peruvian Andes and employs both ethnographic and biological methodologies to explore the determinants of infant growth and health in a community undergoing rapid economic and nutritional transition.
