I am not currently taking on new graduate students at UC San Diego or Macquarie University (for 2019-2020 period).
I supervise anthropologically grounded research projects that connect with any of the following themes within medical, psychological, or sociocultural anthropology: Global health. Child and maternal health. Infanticide. Reproductive health. An anthropology of childhood. Family relations. Ageing. Health related development activities. Misfortune and “disorder.” Caregiving. Mental health and intergenerational (historical) trauma. Ethnomedicine and ethnomedical systems. Divination and related systems of diagnosis and meaning making. Risk, uncertainty, and decision-making. Phenomenological, symbolic/interpretive, narrative, critical (political-economic and ecological), and psychoanalytic approaches and theories are welcomed. I am currently not accepting students studying maternal and reproductive health issues in western contexts unless the research is clearly innovative.
