Past-President

(2012–2015)

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology, McMaster University. My area of interest within biological anthropology is child health and nutrition and environmental health as it pertains to urban ecosystems. My research perspectives are grounded in biocultural and political-economic approaches. My main geographic areas of focus are South Asia and Canada. One of my current research interests is dietary change and health among immigrants to Canada. I have recently conducted a CIHR-funded planning project investigating dietary change and food insecurity among newcomers to Hamilton, Ontario. I have also investigated topics such as: child obesity, infant vitamin D supplementation and growth and development among infants and children.
