I am a Human Biologist who uses a biocultural approach to study health and nutrition outcomes in partnership with minority groups and indigenous communities. The main purpose of my research is to promote sustained health and wellbeing for all, at all ages.  My ultimate goal is to ensure that the outcomes of my research revert back to the communities I am working with. My mission, as a scholar, is to create and sustain supportive and inclusive research and learning environments, where everyone thrives.
