I am a biologist with broad interests in the interaction of humans, microbes, and the environment. I have several years of research experience in diverse fields of biology, including microbiology and cell biology. I am excited about combining these two experiences under the framework of anthropology. Currently, I am a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology at OU. I am working on an interdisciplinary project studying the effects of long-term political instability over Nagorno-Karabakh, its influence on human mobility, land surface degradation and malaria re-emergence.
