My interests include medical and cognitive anthropology. As a faculty fellow at CELF, I am working to develop an integrated perspective on health-related activities within middle-class dual-career family life by attending to the processes, social supports (social networks), and artifacts relied upon by family members to promote the health and well-being of those in the family. For example, how do family members recognize, respond to and manage ill health? What do family members do to promote wellbeing in daily family life?
