I am an inter/transdisciplinary researcher of the entanglements between microbes, embodiment, and inequalities. To date, my research has focused on (1) socio-cultural aspects of the human microbiome and immunology; and (2) feminist embodied approaches and methods to address and remedy health inequalities associated with antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and chronic/recurrent infections. This includes an examination of how inequalities are being reproduced within science as it moves from and between the laboratory, the governmental, the popular, and the embodied. I use a wide variety of theoretical perspectives including STS, gender and body studies, and critical global and public health and qualitative research methods including multi-sited and digital ethnographies, historical and policy analysis.
