Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of New Hampshire

Research focuses on the intersection of biomedicine, pandemics, and the human-animal relations.

She is exploring how novel life forms in avian flu research are being appropriated and exchanged in scientific arenas and global commodity markets.
