I am an economic and medical anthropologist interested in women's empowerment and gender equity. My research aims to understand how and why gender equity or inequity is generated inside of homes through the interlacing of family bargaining dynamics, policy, and cultural norms. My research unravels the complex web of intrahousehold relationships through four strands of scholarship: paid labor, property ownership, domestic violence, and unpaid caregiving labor.
