About Dr. Weaver
I hold an M.P.H. in global health and a Ph.D. in medical anthropology from Emory University, and I am presently employed as an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Alabama. I am also an affiliated faculty member in the University of Alabama's Asian Studies program. I have been studying heath and illness in India for over a decade, and in the past three years have begun working in rural northern Brazil. I now work in both locations and am planning to start a domestic research program as well. I speak Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese.
