Thesis: Beyond Clinical Bioethics and into the Everyday Ethics of Living with Genetic Disease

Research: My research aims to utilize advances in the anthropology of ethics to better understand how people live a “good life” with genetic disease. By focusing on support networks for the genetic condition, Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1), my project aims to explore conceptions of obligation, identity, and community.

Research interests: the anthropology of ethics, the anthropology of medical genetics, bioethics, the anthropologist-informant relationship, ethnographic writing about the United States.
