Amy Moran-Thomas, PhD is the Alfred Henry and Jean Morrison Hayes Career Development Associate Professor of Anthropology at MIT, interested in the human and material entanglements that shape health in practice. Her research bridges the anthropology of health and environment (chronic disease; ecological and agricultural change; metabolism and nutrition) with ethnographic studies of science and technology (medical devices; chemical infrastructures; technology and kinship). Her ethnographic book, Traveling with Sugar: Chronicles of a Global Epidemic (2019), is now open access at MIT Libraries.
