Biography

I have recently become an Assistant Professor of Public Health at Aarhus University in Denmark but, by both training and world view, I am a bio-anthropologist. Bio-anthropology uses methods from anthropology/sociology as well as ecology to study human natural history, ie, to ask questions about how and why human populations vary culturally and biologically. In my current role, I use bio-anthropological lenses to pose questions about human health experiences and outcomes during pregnancy and the first few years post-partum, mostly in relation to nutrition and various forms of psycho-social and environmental stress. I’m also guilty of applying bio-anthropological thinking to chaotic aspects of my (mostly wonderful) personal life, which features caring for two fabulous kids, dealing with migration stress and homesickness, volunteering and trying to be an activist, and, once in a while, making time to play the ukulele.
