Qualitative research | Methodology

Welcome to my personal website! I am a cultural anthropologist by trade and have a PhD in mental health sciences. I am interested in qualitative research related to healthcare and have a penchant for methodology.

I have the pleasure of working with amazing people on inspiring projects; this website is a hub for current and past initiatives.

I have the incredible honor of receiving an MSCA individual fellowship!
(2021 August - 2024 August)

We will develop a novel open source quantitative ethnographic tool for integrating eye-movement, human-computer interaction, and narratives.

With this tool, we will be conducting an empirical study on how people search for and appraise health-related information online. Results will aid the development of an intervention to increase digital health literacy.

This is a joint initiative involving the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Maastricht University.
