Geographic focus: Southeast Asia, Vietnam

Thematic interests: Medical anthropology, science and technology studies, multispecies ethnography, biopolitics, property, pandemics

Current research: A book project, “Viral Economies: Bird Flu Control and Global Health Experiments beyond the Human,” traces bird flu interventions from the multinational policy arena to their implementation in Vietnamese farming communities, exploring tensions between the “public” ethos of global health and the proprietary devices inherent in livestock economies and bio-security regimes. Other research analyses scientists’ efforts to regulate experiments on pathogenic viruses.
