I am interested in the interaction between biology, ecology, and culture in relation to reproductive health and infant development. I am particularly interested in the effect of endocrine disruptor exposure on women and children’s health. Exposure to endocrine disruptors is not uniform, and my work aims to investigate the health consequences among those disproportionately exposed. I also work with minimally exposed and market-integrating communities to study the effects of increasing exposure to endocrine disruptors. For my dissertation research, I am studying the impacts of maternal endocrine disruptor exposure on infant hormonal profiles from a biosocial perspective in northern Argentina.

I am conducting my doctoral research with the C.A.R.E. Project in Formosa, Argentina.
As part of the YREL, I run ELISA assays for the hormonal analysis of biological samples, such as urine.
