I am a medical anthropologist with expertise in critical global health, health sector reform, international volunteering, development, hospital ethnography, and the anthropology of biomedicine. My work is primarily ethnographic and multi-scalar, meaning that I follow policies and interventions from the spaces where they are contemplated, designed, and marketed, to the places where they are implemented. My research focuses on Tanzania and the United States.
