Michelle Munyikwa


I am an MD/PhD student in anthropology.   My current interests are in critical race, feminist and queer of color critique, disability studies, Africa & the diaspora, migration, and postcolonial science/technology/medicine. Fundamentally, I hope to understand how oppression and social exclusion influence access to, experiences with, and ideologies about health and healthcare.
