I am a sociocultural anthropologist with research interests in environment, health, STS (science & technology studies), social movements, and the meanings of a good and ethical life. Geographically I focus on Greater China, including Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. After receiving my doctoral degree in Anthropology from the University of Oxford, I went on to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher for the Forum on Health, Environment and Development (FORHEAD) before joining a 5-year ERC funded project on the contested nature of expertise at the University of Warwick.
Prior to my academic career, I worked as public health researcher for the National Health Service (NHS), focusing on women’s experience of antenatal care in Scotland. I retain a strong interest in applied medical and environmental anthropology, especially the politics of self-care/self-technologies and their implications for women’s wellbeing and the feminist movement.
