I am gay and I am a cultural epidemiologist.//
I’m a sociologist by training (MA, University of Geneva, 2016) and a cultural epidemiologist by speciality (PhD, University of Basel, Switzerland, 2020). I’m originally from the USA but moved to Switzerland in 2015, where I have since been living with my husband. My research interests are medicalized forms of risk prevention (i.e. vaccination, PrEP for HIV), health behaviors/decision-making, healthcare professionals’ roles, reputations, and cultures, and health policy. Other than that, I enjoy reading, gardening, knitting, binge-watching Drag Race, and travelling the world with my husband. I’m curious about what other scientists/scholars are working on, so don’t be shy!
