welcome to my page
I am in the third year of my PhD in Biocultural Medical Anthropology at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I am investigating socio-cultural factors that influence health, using stress theory, a cognitive theory of culture and cultural consonance theory. Tuscaloosa is my field site.
My goal is to obtain a doctorate and acquire a position teaching at the university level, or alternatively, working in a governmental or non-profit organization where my skills in research can be used to inform public policy.
