My graduate research culminated in a dissertation entitled “Biopolitics and Subjectivity: The Case of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Italy.” For this study, I conducted 11 months of ethnographic fieldwork in Italy, supported by a Fulbright IIE Grant. I have previously conducted research on support groups for parents of children with autism spectrum conditions in the United States; blood donation policies for men who have sex with men; and healthy eating policy, systems, and environmental level changes – all of which share a focus on institutional and organizational factors that impact health identities and subjectivities as well as health and wellbeing generally.
