PhD Candidate

Australian National University

I am researching veterinary anthropology, that is, animal health, illness and healing practices in society. This includes a basic foundation in human-animal relationships, illness narratives, traditional and modern veterinary systems and their services. I have primarily focused on Tibetan cultural areas including Bhutan, but am also investigating the Indian sub-continent.
I am also interested in the culture of veterinary science in Australia and how religion, culture and society influence and form the practice of veterinarians and they, in turn, shape society.
