About Anneliese

Originally from the Tampa bay area of Florida, I moved to North Carolina after completing my Bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida. During my time as an undergraduate , my research focused on food insecurity, social class, and healthcare access among older adults. The program was grounded in Applied Anthropology, which has been pivotal in my orientation as a researcher. At the University of North Carolina, I explore the social determinants of reproductive health. I am PhD candidate in the Anthropology Program in Human Biology, Ecology, and Evolution, an Epidemiology doctoral minor in the Gillings' School of Public Health, and a Predoctoral Biosocial Trainee at the Carolina Population Center.

Research Interests

Research Background

My research focuses on examining reproductive health outcomes from a biocultural perspective. My dissertation explores the effect of social class and adversity on antenatal depression, ovarian reserve, infertility, and fertility desires and intentions among people with ovaries in the southeastern United States. I utilize methods and theoretical orientations from biological anthropology, reproductive epidemiology, and social geography in my work.
