BIO STATEMENT

I am a medical anthropologist and have interests in the health of women, children, immigrants, refugees, older people, and transgender individuals. I am interested in issues relating to motherhood, reproductive health, sexuality, sexual health, mental health, HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and the global pandemic. I have undertaken many research projects with refugee and immigrant women in Australia and qualitative research with women living with HIV/AIDS and breast cancer in Thailand and Malaysia. I am a qualitative researcher and have written several textbooks on this approach. At VinUniversity, my focus will be on health behaviors and social determinants of health.
