As a medical anthropologist, I am broadly interested in the biosocial underpinnings of health disparities. My dissertation research focuses on the ways Latin American migrant women living in Connecticut accommodate traumatic histories, ongoing structural vulnerability, and the COVID-19 pandemic. I also examine the impacts of race-based medicine on minoritized patients. As an M.D./Ph.D. student, I aim to engage my clinical and anthropological training to understand and address health outcomes for marginalized populations.
