How do lifestyle, nutrition, and social structure shape people's health around the world?
This is the central question motivating my research. I explore how the day-to-day management of type 2 diabetes shapes North Indian women's abilities to participate in social roles considered appropriate for women of their age, class, and caste groups.
I also study the links between food insecurity, mental health, and chronic diseases in rural Amazonia, Brazil.
