Research

My work focuses on the interfaces of human biological, psychological, and social systems. I am currently conducting fieldwork among Shuar forager-horticulturalists of the Ecuadorian Amazon. A major focus of my project is to collect data on how individuals cope, behaviorally and physiologically, with energetic stressors such as infectious disease and nutritional depletion. 

I also conduct research on how various dimensions of social inequality (e.g., socioeconomic status, racial identity, caste membership) become biologically embedded and produce disparities in health.
