I am an ethnographer of science, medicine and technology.   My work has included research on assisted reproduction in the United States and Ecuador, reproductive governance in Latin America, transnational medical migrations, and currently environmental health science in the United States and Mexico.  Within these projects I trace how biomedical and scientific projects are part of the looping conditions of life that shape bodies and kinship, challenging the notion of biology as fixed, universal and apolitical.
