Curriculum Vitae

My interdisciplinary research lies at the nexus between medical geography, political ecology, and the history of public health, with a regional focus on Latin America. In terms of methodology, I mainly use qualitative social research methods and historical archival research techniques. My main areas of interest include the political ecology of infectious and vector-borne diseases; environmental and social history of disease control; social medicine and public health in Latin America; and the biopolitics of public health interventions. I am currently working on a book project on the history of Latin American social medicine.
