My current research interests include the transition to obesity that accompanies market integration among indigenous children, energy balance, and the nutritional and cultural role of fermented foods.
I am a first year Anthropology PhD student. I received a BS in Physical Anthropology from Universidad de Chile in 2018. I am originally from Chile, and worked as a field assistant studying nutrition transition in indigenous peoples in the Atacama Desert. I also did research characterizing the diet of past populations from bioarchaeological contexts in the same area. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, biking, and reading good novels.
