Lecturer in Global Health, Institute of Health and Wellbeing/School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Glasgow

I am a cultural anthropologist and lecturer in Global Health at the Institute of Health and Wellbeing (IHW) and Sociology in the School of Social and Political Sciences. I specialize on issues related to health and disease, environment, conservation, gender, livelihoods, and community-based impact-driven methods in East Africa.

My graduate work was in environmental and cultural anthropology at the University of Colorado, Boulder where I explored the histories, memories, and risks of communities living on the boarders of national parks and protected areas in Tanzania. Ater a brief stint at the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Alaska, working with Native Alaskan communities on subsitence policy, I returned to academia to do postdoctoral work on land rights, women's empowerment, and gender based violence in pastoralist communities in Tanzania.
