I am a graduate student in Integrated Anthropological Sciences (IAS). My research focuses on the determinants and outcomes of women’s status and leadership. I am specifically interested in assessing 1) how the socio-ecology influences women’s pursuit of leadership roles 2) how social status affects health and development, and 3) how anthropological data can be used to better understand the variation in women’s lives and opportunities, and further inform public policy. My current research lies in examining the reproductive and health consequences of women’s status among the Tsimane forager-horticulturalists of lowland Bolivia.
