Research Interests: 
Human-environment interactions that lead to the cause and spread of infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis and malaria, in Latin America


E’lana graduated from the University of Chicago with a B.A. in Anthropology in 2007. She is currently interested in researching the direct and indirect ways in which health is impacted by migration within Mexican farmworkers in California. Specifically, she would like to focus on nutritional health, demographic shifts, food availability, social networks and organizations, and food sharing practices. Major questions around her research involve how specific groups adapt to changes in food availability, the strategies used to buffer against food insecurity, and what are the specific health outcomes.
