As a medical and environmental anthropologist, I study the entanglement of human lives with the lives of nonhumans, particularly dengue mosquitoes, dengue viruses, and microbiota. Since 2006, I have been doing ethnographic fieldwork in urban Nicaragua. More recently, I have worked in the Caribbean and the United States. All of my research deals in one way or another with the coproduction of bodies and urban environments.
