I studied Archaeology, Classics, and Classical Art at University College London as an undergraduate. After working on archaeological sites in the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf, I turned my attention to issues of health and disease in Africa, gaining an MPH in Global Health and PhD in Anthropology from Emory University in Atlanta. I have held postdoctoral research positions in Global Health at Emory and Evolutionary Anthropology at UCL, and began my teaching career in Medical Anthropology at Durham.
Research Summary
My research centres on health and human development in sub-Saharan Africa. I am particularly interested in the health implications of mass schooling, forced migration, and food and water insecurity. My current projects focus on the impacts of hydroelectric dam and plantation development in Ethiopia and Kenya.
Teaching Summary
In addition to contributing to the core curriculum in Medical Anthropology, I teach specialized courses on Applied Medical Anthropology, and the Anthropology of Morality and Ethics. I also convene courses in Anthropological Research Methods for postgraduates and the Individual Studies (dissertation) module for final-year undergraduates.
