Research in India
Dr. Weaver studies the relationships between type 2 diabetes, women's gendered social roles, and their mental health in New Delhi, India. This ongoing project has engaged over 400 women to date. The mixed-method research uses a biocultural approach that understands culture and social life as both a product of, and a factor shaping, human biology. Dr. Weaver uses methods that measure people's beliefs, behaviors, and biological states to obtain a holistic picture of how diabetes shapes, and is shaped by, women's lifestyles.
