I am a biocultural medical anthropologist who is interested in the politics, processes, and culture of global health institutions. Currently, my focus is on disgust and shame in sanitation programming and policies in India. As I work toward my PhD in anthropology, I am simultaneously working to earn my masters in global health from the Rollins School of Public Health.
