I am a biocultural anthropologist at Arizona State University, where I founded the Center for Global Health. Trained in human biology, demography, and medical anthropology, I do collaborative, transdisciplinary social science research to understand and solve complex health and environmental challenges. I also teach undergraduate anthropology and global health and train advanced students interested in careers in or beyond the academy.
