Luisa Madrigal Marroquín

Graduate Student, Anthopology

Luisa Madrigal Marroquín’s interests examine the intersections of race, gender, class and their influence on nutrition and health interventions in Guatemala. Her current project examines how interventions to promote early life growth and development are implemented among indigenous and non-indigenous people in Guatemala. This project combines methodological and theoretical tools from anthropology, public health, history, and STS to understand how childhood stunting prevention programs and nutrition interventions are operationalized and experienced. Luisa’s dissertation research is being supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
