Professor, Medical Anthropology, University of Toronto

I use tools and concepts from cultural anthropology to study social and cultural dimensions of illness and medicine. Specific topics I have researched include fetal ultrasound imaging, end-of-life decisionmaking, medical education, dialysis, and dementia. This work has appeared in medical journals as well as social science publications.
