My research interests center around conceptions of mental health/illness and access to mental health care. Specifically, I'm interested in novel ontologies and epistemologies that speak to "mental" health without relying on Cartesian dualism, and how these can be opportunities for healing, resilience, and resistance; I intend to explore these questions in Highland Guatemala.
