I oppose the President-elect of the United States so long as he continues to support his planned policies toward undocumented immigrants and Muslims.
I am Director of the Medical Anthropology Ph.D. Program. My research explores tensions in structural, religious, and psychoanalytic logics in new forms of care. Over the past decade I have carried out research in the Caribbean on the transnational science of genomic research on the African diaspora; asthma as a modern condition in its ambiguity; and pleasures and dangers construed around diabetes and violence. These projects focus on biomedical links made between desire and suffering and the ethics and aesthetics of being healthy.
