"As a cultural anthropologist, my primary interests are in medical anthropology, gender, development, and nationalism in South Asia, especially India. My past research has focused on women’s reproductive health and rituals during childbirth and my current research explores the impact of HIV/AIDS in India. My work combines theoretical insights into the construction of health, medicine and the body and an engagement with health and gender policy."
