Research Interests

I am interested in maternal and child health, and women’s health overall. My current research involves food insecurity and its associations maternal and child health outcomes in rural Nicaragua. I find this an important area of study as diet, culture, and evolution are typically overlooked and under researched aspects of health, particularly when it comes to women. I am also interested in human rights work and proper access to food, water, and healthcare for everyone. While health of the living is my current field of study within anthropology, my background is in forensic anthropology and human rights, and osteology/skeletal biology. I did this work while completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and wrote a thesis on mass grave detection.
