Global Health Coordinator; Clinical Assistant Professor., Memorial University of Newfoundland

As a medical anthropologist I am interested in the dynamic relationship between social values, equity and health practices. I teach in the Faculty of Medicine and am a qualitative researcher with a feminist lens. My work centres on reproductive and sexual health and rights as well as access to care and the impact of health services on reproductive politics at the household and the community level. I also work on social determinant of health more broadly, highlighting structural violence around harm reduction practices. I work in Nepal, Haiti and locally in Newfoundland.
