As a medical and environmental anthropologist, I study the entanglement of human lives with the lives of nonhumans, particularly dengue mosquitoes, dengue viruses, and microbiota. Since 2006, I have been doing ethnographic fieldwork in urban Nicaragua. More recently, I have worked in the Caribbean and the United States. All of my research deals in one way or another with the coproduction of bodies and urban environments.
I am Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Franklin and Marshall College, where I teach courses on medical anthropology, Latin America, environmental anthropology, and research methods. In 2013-2014, I was a Fernand Braudel Fellow in the Maison des sciences de l'homme in Paris, France.
