I am a medical anthropologist specializing in Vietnam. My research interests include infectious disease, the public health consequences of economic change, and the cultural landscape of post-socialism. My publications include works on cholera epidemics (Medical Anthropology Quarterly), stratification in health systems (Medicine Anthropology Theory), and biopower under socialism (forthcoming, Routledge). With interdisciplinary collaborators, I have published on topics including feminicidio in Guatemala, the cultural politics of anatomical exhibitions, and the theoretical uses of ghost and haunting discourses (Comparative Studies in Society and History). I am currently completing my first book, titled "Remember The Source: Cholera and the Politics of Health in Vietnam."
